[Item Image] English Discoveries
The Ultimate Multimedia English Learning Experience

English Discoveries introduces a revolution in language learning, incorporating multimedia
elements and native language support in over 15 languages and immersing the student in an
environment where all elements of English language learning--listening, speaking, reading,
writing, grammar and vocabulary--are available. The series includes 9 exciting Adventure
Games, each set in a different English speaking city.

The 11 CD-ROMs provide over 1000 hours of language learning. Teacher tools include tests,
lesson-planning and record-keeping.

English Discoveries is suitable for ages 11 to adult and is divided into the following levels:

Letís Start
1 CD for absolute and false beginners.

3 CDs from post-beginner to pre-intermediatefor learners with 1-3 years of English language

3 CDs from pre-intermediate to pre-advancedfor learners with 3-5 years of English language

4 CDs, including Review for post-intermediate to advanced for learners with 5 or more years of
English language instruction.

Minimum Hardware Requirements: Windows 3.1 or higher, 4 Mb RAM (8 Mb recommended),
CD-ROM drive, CPU 386 or higher, mouse, sound card, speaker or earphones, microphone; 9
free on hard disk for each CD. Windows Ď95 compatible.

English Discoveries has a few options that do not exist in English Plus: it has lessons,
utilities (where you can define lessons), entry and exit tests, and a grammar book.

The new version, which needs 4 giga free on the server, is a multi-user version and it works
only with the CDs of English Discoveries. This version has a setup CD, from which you can
install all CDís (12) of English Discoveries to the server. In addition, it installs the Teacherís
Management System to the server. The Teacherís Management System enables the teacher
to define classes, students, get reports (for a specific student or for a specific class), and
define lessons. In this version, there is no need in CD drives at each station and no need to
keep the CDís. All work is done on the LAN from the server.

The multi-user version can also be used by installing the single CDís of the product (total of
12) in the CD drive of each workstation. Only the Teacherís Management System and some
general files are installed on the server. In this case you need only 150 mega free on the

Simultaneous use by several students of the same module does not cause any problem. All
the file sharing on the server is handled by the software. Students can work on the same
modules without any problem in either of the versions mentioned above.
