clear edge, or use device Back.
In the modules (flashcards) there is a RapidFire button
- the same button presses Test then Answer then Test and
so on. Ditto with Learn.
If you get a Runtime Error, press OK - it is normally not
serious. If it won't go away, restart the app.
Sometimes it says 'Not available in this version' or 'Where
is the file...?' They mean the same, I am afraid, you need
to upgrade for all the links to work.

How to use it
Any way you like!
One way to begin: you can take the tests.
If you are correct and quick, the system will invite you
to jump to the next test. If you are slow and incorrect,
the system will not suggest taking the next test. You will
see all the correct answers at the end of 1,2,3 or 4 tests.
Then look at the results: the correct answers are listed,
and at the bottom of the screen are buttons to explain the
answer and give you a link to study in more detail. In
the Free version these links are not live. The go to
the Control Screen and tap Your Level. This will take your
scores and give you an approximate level and study plan
for that level. Report will give a short summary of your
possible problems - this could be useful for a teacher.
You can then use the Tenses, Full, or Business version of
TutorScreens to work on that study plan, and the next level
Or you can begin on an area you have difficulty with,
maybe the Tenses. Choose Grammar, and then Tense Comparisons
- in the free version, not all options are live
Or you can begin by looking at Favourite Mistakes.
Audio was not easy back in 1992 so there is very little on
TutorScreens. We are planning more for Subscription AudioTexts.
Ditto graphics. If you have a problem with one of the maps
(it's probably out of date anyway), close the app and restart.
Runtime Errors are part of life with DosBox on Android. See
Anything else? Close and restart - it'll probably be gone.
If not, please email us.
Of course, please. What you like, what you don't like, what
you would like to see - all of interest.
|How is it special?
1. The programmer and the English teacher were the same person,
so the teacher knew where it would be helpful to make a tense
example live, and the programmer knew how to do it.
2. TutorScreens is hypertext, with links to jump you to a
related topic, a dialogue example, or a grammar explanation.
This helps you to understand and remember - like a mind-map
3. The material is selected carefully. Not all the Phrasal
Verbs are there because only some are difficult AND common.
The Irregular Verbs are grouped by order of importance to
the learner, and the way they are practised is contextual
not parrot! The Idioms are selected so that while a listener
may be surprised that you know them, they will not laugh at
