Italian Audio FlashCards is a foreign language vocabulary learning tool by Declan Software. The Italian version includes around 5,000 words and phrases each with a native speaker audio recording. Words are organized into approximately 100 WordFiles with each WordFile containing up to 110 words.

The Learning List: The words are learned based on a Learning List. The Learning List contains a subset of all the words in the WordFile – 10 words by default (although this can be changed by users). The Learning List allows users to concentrate learning a small group of words at any one time. Once a word is learned (by reviewing the Learning List and completing the Exercises) it is removed from the Learning List and is replaced by another, as yet unlearned word from the WordFile. This continues until the whole WordFile is learned.

Exercises: Words in the learning list should first be Reviewed using the “Review Learning List” option. Then users can move to the Exercises which include the Meaning Exercise, the Word Exercise, the Spelling Exercise and the Listening Exercise. Once all the exercises have been correctly completed, the word is marked as complete, removed from the Learning List and replaced by a new word. However, if the user gets one answer wrong in any of the exercises, then all the exercises must be completed again for that one word. This ensures comprehensive learning and retention.

Managing the Learning List: After a new WordFile is loaded the Learning List size is automatically set to 10. The number of words in the Learning List can be set by adding or removing words to the Learning List in the “Review Words” feature. In the “Task” menu select “All Words in WordFile” and then return to the main page. The select “Review All WordFile Words”. As you progress through the words in the WordFile words can be added to and dropped from the Learning List using the “Add to Learning List” / “Drop from Learning List” button. If you end up changing the number of words in the Learning List, that number will be maintained as words are learning and dropped from the Learning List, and new words are automatically added the Learning List to replace learned words.?

Loading new WordFiles: To switch to another wordfile simply press the “Load Another WordFile” button and then select the WordFile you desire from the “Load WordFile” table. The Audio FlashCards comes preloaded with 3 WordFiles – all other WordFiles are downloaded by the application as required using an (WiFi or 3G) internet connection.

Other language versions of FlashCards available in the Mac App Store include French, Spanish, German, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Japanese, Korean, Bahasa Indonesian, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Greek and Hebrew. Free.

Ratings and Reviews

Well Worth the Price

I have tried over a dozen different flashcard or learn Italian programs and I just spent six months in Bologna, Italy studying Italian. If you are serious about expanding your vocabulary this program is the best one out there. I set it up to hear every word in spoken Italian. The pronunciation is excellent. The progression through recognizing the Italian word, to recalling the Italian word when seeing the English, to spelling and writing the word is superb. A basic vocabulary is considered 2,000 words in Italian. Most flashcard programs have only 1,000 words and some have 2,000. This program with about 5,000 words is really what you need to get past the plateau of being able to get along but not having the power to express yourself. If you are putting in the hundreds of hours to learn a foreign language, certainly the cost of this program can be considered an investment. It will give you a great return if you put in the time. By the way, I have nothing to do with the company and am writing this completely independently, even before the usual "Please rate this app" request. I am just impressed with the quality of the program and think that the developers should have their work recognized as a job well done.

Great, but a major error

This app is wonderful and easy to use, but in the Family section, no matter how many times you type in 'il figli' correctly, it still says it is wrong. Errors like this are too frustrating to give a perfect review.

This is amazing
