Synopsis: Word Town, Basic English Vocabulary, is a CD-ROM which presents 400 commonly-used English vocabulary words found in a typical town. It is organized into 20 relevant scenes, such as house, school, hospital and library, each emphasizing real-life situations. Students can see, hear and read all the words necessary for everyday communication in English; colorful illustrations, clear audio and easy-to-read type facilitate quick learning of essential words. In addition to teaching English vocabulary, the interactive CD-ROM format stresses correct pronunciation. Word Town is ideal as supplemental material for classroom, tutor or individual use.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 3 Up –Word Town, a very simply-drawn town of many buildings and people, is the setting for the introduction of 400 commonly-used English words and real-life situations. As the objects, persons, and buildings are highlighted, the narrator clearly pronounces the name of each item and the word is displayed onscreen. Thus, students see, hear, and read at the same time to facilitate the learning process. The tour takes viewers inside most of the buildings, including a house, school, library, hospital and more, and also describes a zoo, family, and travel center. The objects are named, but their use or function is not described, which may lead to confusion, especially when the objects are not clearly drawn or are too small. This is especially true when the object is as small as a pen, as shapeless as a jacket on a coat rack, or family members are labeled simultaneously as daughter, sister, and twin. Though some of the buildings are distinctive, others could be any buildings in a town; the library looks like a bank or a government building and others are just non-descript. The graphics are not particularly interesting and won't hold the attention of young students. While this might not be the best tool for non-English speaking students, it could help teach pronunciation and add vocabulary to the repertoire of ESL students who already speak English.–MaryAnn Karre, Horace Mann Elementary School, Binghamton, NY
