Take the pain out of learning vocabulary
Dictionary Blaster features a selection of 'arcade' style games, all of which have been designed to be fairly simple and lots of fun. However,  Dictionary Blaster should not be regarded purely as a source of entertainment, but rather, as a tool for learning. Research into memory enhancement has determined that learning arbitrary material such as vocabulary can be more effective if the brain is in a heightened state of arousal*.  This can be induced by performing a stimulating task whilst being presented with the material to be remembered. Dictionary Blaster aims to harness this relationship, providing students with a way to learn English vocabulary more quickly and more enjoyably than has been possible until now. An interesting article by Rolf Palmberg entitled 'Computer games and foreign language vocabulary learning'  further highlights the potential for computer game software to improve the experience of foreign language students.** Dictionary Blaster is free so go grab your copy now, from the link below.
