A New Game

I have had an iPod touch since May, but I had never downloaded a game from the App Store before.  Now that I have an iPad, I decided I really needed to get some apps for it.  So what was the first one I downloaded?  A game of course.  But I had to buy something a bit useful as well.  So I purchased the BidBod Vocabulary Trainer, English-Bulgarian version for $4.99.  Here is the description off of the sales page.

Learn the most common 1,000 words in Bulgarian.

Being able to utilize two languages sharpens your mental skills and has positive benefits on your everyday life.

Whether you're a novice or an expert you'll enjoy playing the BidBox Vocabulary Training game.

This game let's you build your vocabulary with just a few words at a time. You'll repeat the same words until you can confidently identify and select 15 correct answers in 30 seconds. This system permanently places the association of each word to its English counter part into your long term memory. It is a very natural way to learn a new language.

Vocabulary is the cornerstone of every language. The 1,000 words in this program represent the majority of written words used.

Dedicate just a few minutes a day and you'll learn to recognize the majority of Bulgarian words in just a few weeks.

I'm not really sure how well the game will help me learn.  From playing it up to stage 8, I think I can safely say that this is not a primary way to learn a foreign language.  But I can see where this game can help supplement my study of Bulgarian.  And it looks like the app is made for 33 languages.

NOTE: I have no business association with this game.  If you purchase it, I do not get a dime.
