[prMac.com] Chicago, Illinois - Renkara Media Group is pleased to announce its new Essentials line of language study applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch, available for free download now in the iTunes App Store. Essentials are available in Spanish, French, Italian, German, and 12 other languages. All Essentials applications have the same features as the latest paid version of AccelaStudy but with a reduced set of vocabulary words and audio files.
Highlighted Features Include:
* A useful subset of AccelaStudy's comprehensive vocabulary list is provided with professionally recorded audio pronunciations for every word.
* Several methods of study, including flashcards, quiz mode, audio quiz mode, and spaced repetition mode, allow the student to learn in the fashion most comfortable and intuitive for them. Quizzes are an excellent way to measure progress.
* Students can create custom study sets of vocabulary words within the application. Study sets can be of any size and any combination of words. Custom study sets allow a student to focus on words which are more interesting or important to them. AccelaStudy will automatically track their progress in learning these words, helping students learn faster by prioritizing the words they don't yet know.
* Textual quizzes test a user's ability to match a word written in one language with the same written word in another language. The new Audio Quiz mode helps users match spoken vocabulary with written translations.
* Spaced Repetition mode helps a user spend more time studying new and unfamiliar words and less time on words already mastered. As the user studies, AccelaStudy tracks the user's progress and optimizes the study session automatically.
* All vocabulary words are quickly searchable and search results provide direct access to the audio pronuciation of each matching word.
* An elegant and efficient user interface reduces eye strain and is optimized for long study sessions.
