Tell Me More Performance has the features that will improve your English skills. The software combines state-of-the-art technology like speech recognition and digital imaging with proven methods like repetition and the use of visual, audio and participation teaching techniques.
During the dialog exercise, you participate in a mock conversation with the computer. For example, the computer may say, “Good morning, how are you?” You can reply, “I am fine, and you?’ The conversation continues and if you aren’t sure about your pronunciation, the program will create a wavelength of a native speaker’s voice and then have you say the word or phrase. You are able to compare wavelengths and make the necessary adjustments.
Some of the vocabulary building exercises include picture/word association, fill in the blank, word association and fun games like crossword puzzles, word searches and a version of hangman.
One of the most attractive features of Tell Me More is the additional content you receive.

Tell Me More intertwines the fundamentals of English to create a strong teaching system. The program associates listening to reading and writing. For example, it may have you listen to a word and first recognize it and then later write it.

A new feature in the program allows you to learn and test the fundamentals of English by hearing, reading and speaking the language.

There are a few different shows available (none that you've heard of before) and you are given the opportunity to interact with characters and communicate with them. This is actually an effective way to practice the fundamentals.
