Ticwow Eng™ Learn English grammar as you play tic-tac-toe
An effective game simulator to help understand English grammar using a unique “3x3” methodology
"Embed basic, yet effectively systematized English grammar in your head while playing a cool game, without having to go through boring routine exercises..." (iphones.ru) ***** "An amazing iPhone and iPad application for the study of English grammar without going through tedious exercises.
..." (macosworld.ru)***** "...perhaps one of the single best, iPhone-inspired ways we know of to obtain some useful knowledge without feeling like you’re in class" (theiphoneappreview.com)****
Ticwow Eng is a Tic-Tac-Toe-based game simulator, which develops automatic reflexes in the use of the English grammar. While playing, you form sentences quickly, automatically and naturally, without getting distracted by analyzing rules and learning by rote. Ticwow Eng teaches you not to contemplate over rules, but to immediately apply them, depending on time and actions. Precisely the way a native language is spoken – we simply know the construction as well as how and when to use it in order to express a given action or condition, without having to comb through the relevant grammar rules. Ticwow Eng gives a clear direction about grammar and fixed constructs in the English language using one simple “3x3” logic. Having developed the necessary automatism in Ticwow Eng, you would achieve a new level allowing you to converse freely, build vocabulary and enrich your language. All new knowledge would simply “stack up” on the structure, already brought to automatism.
In the current version:
+ Full support for retina new iPad, iPhone 5 and iOS 6
+ Practicing the SIMPLE, CONTINUOUS, PERFECT TENSES, to BE, IRREGULAR VERBS and DEGREES of COMPARISON structures
+ Easy to absorb VISUAL GRAMMAR WITH EXAMPLES (tap on the “light bulb” icon)
+ TRANSLATING PHRASES upon answering (online)
+ Different MULTIPLAYER modes, accessible in the COMPETITION menu chapter (voice chat during game via Game Center)
+ CONSECUTIVE ADDING OF NEW WORDS in tables with progress saving
+ NO HINT playing mode to increase speed (activated after level 10)
Practicing the structures for only 5 minutes each daily (in any order), you would be able to do the following within a mere few weeks:
* talk about actions or doing something in proper tense (SIMPLE TENSES)
* escribe conditions, features or attributes of someone or something in proper tense (TO BE)
* describe a process/action in a certain moment in proper tense (CONTINUOUS TENSES)
* indicate the condition or underscore the result of a completed action (PERFECT TENSES)
* unmistakably choose, depending on tense, one of the 3 forms of irregular verbs and know its translation (IRREGULAR VERBS)
* form and change the positive, comparative and superlative forms of an adjective/adverb (DEGREES of COMPARISON)
Basic data structures combined with more than 700 of the most frequently used verbs, adjectives and nouns. More than 35,000 grammatically correct combinations. Most importantly – not to concentrate on learning by rote or analyzing in the process, but instead to simply enjoy a game. Your brain will do the rest for you. Following this principle you will most effectively achieve the desired automatism.
In the next version:
> new “EXAM” play mode will allow you to test your habits in action (it is necessary to intelligibly translate a Russian phrase in English).
> “STATISTICS” block will help you follow your progress in the internalization of basic structures, indicating your weakest spots.
> new practice modes and much more
