Yay for spanish quizzer! [Jun. 3rd, 2001|11:15 am]

I wrote a program to quiz me on Spanish vocabulary a few years ago. I still use it every quarter. I learned a bunch of music stuff from it earlier this quarter, and right now I'm having it quiz me on classics authors/works. The cool thing about it is that it keeps asking questions until you've both answered it a few times correctly in a row, and your overall correct/wrong ratio on that question is above a certain threshold (I forget all the parameters now, and am too lazy to go look). I learned a few dozen German cities and rivers this way, too, back in high school.

Hooray for learning games!

Is it similar to the Presidents' game from HS?

Dubya is an idiot

You should modify so it's Dubya face, and have him surprised when you get something right and say somethin' like, "Gee I didn't know that! You sure are smart!"

Re: heyyy

It's just a little perl script... you have to have perl installed and stuff.

Re: heyyy

So, any chance you could still release it? I have no problem with Perl, and this sounds very useful ;)
