[prMac.com] Montreal, Canada - Announcing Erasmos Inc., the developer of Reflexarium (French Noun Gender), has released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users who are interested in learning French noun gender rules. The application is the only one of its kind on the market, offering a unique learning experience through the use of French language rules, practice sessions and quizzes. If a user gives an incorrect answer regarding the gender of a given noun, the app speaks aloud, saying the word in a male or female voice, depending on the noun's gender, which helps users remember the correct attribution.
There are approximately sixty-six different rules for more than thirteen hundred nouns in the French language. If you're English and trying to become skilled in French, it's a formidable and daunting amount of information to learn. Even those who have a pretty good mastery of the language can get blindsided by an exception to any of the existing rules.
It is precisely that problem that Reflexarium attempts to solve. With its unique presentation, the app contains not only the rules, exceptions and practice areas but also adds an extra touch to reinforce memory. Every wrong answer to a quiz question results in a vocalized correction. If a noun has a male gender but the user guesses the opposite, a woman's voice will repeat the word aloud. Same goes the other way around, with a male voice responding when the user has incorrectly answered 'female'.
Users would be hard pressed to find another French speaking application, which makes Reflexarium a very unique find. The app is comprehensive enough to be considered a portable tutor and is an invaluable language tool for those wanting to learn proper French.
Features offered in the unique Reflexarium app:
* Offers more than 1300 French nouns
* Gender rules accompany each noun

* Practice sessions help sharpen skills
* Quizzes test knowledge
* If an incorrect answer is offered for a noun, a male or female voice will say the word aloud to help users remember the noun's gender

The app's user interface is attractive and very easy to navigate. Nouns are color coded in areas outside of the quiz section, with male gendered words in blue; female in pink. It adds another memory sparking element to assist users in really learning all of those little rules that can sneak up on the inexperienced.
