Cognate Language Teacher

Description: The Cognate Language Teacher was developed to teach students how to read a natural language on the basis of another related language, by means of a text to be read together with appropriate help options. Two language pairs implemented by the developers are Middle High German, using Modern German as the known cognate, and Catalan using Spanish. At the University of Hull, the French Department has developed MEDFRENCH, teaching medieval French from modern French. The teaching strategy is to provide the student with a series of short texts, a dictionary, a grammar, and possibly a commentary. The program presents lexical information in such a way as to simulate a grammar and a dictionary, both of which are always automatically open at the correct place. A notepad is made available for notes or copying. There is also an authoring package to enable teachers to prepare their own texts.

Requirements: PC running Windows 3.1 or higher with at least 4 MB of RAM.
