Verbix 9

Will there be a newer Verbix version? Yes, there will.

This is the first time I mention about the upcoming Verbix 9.

The aim in this new version is to make Verbix for Windows even easier to use than the previous versions. That said, I dare to attach the first screenshot of Verbix 9 verb conjugator here.

The upcoming Verbix 9 will have two tabs:

  1. Languages and
  2. Conjugation

The languages are now represented in a list. There will be an efficient filter that makes it easy to keep just a handful of languages in the list. Or the user can also have the complete list of 200+ languages there.

For each language Verbix 9 also shows additional language related information on additional 4 tabs as seen in the screenshot. Because many of the languages are developed and maintained by others, there is copyright and contact information for each language in Verbix.

Feel free to send us feedback and wishes for the upcoming Verbix 9 verb conjugator.

One thought on “Verbix 9”

  1. I’m in my fifth year of Spanish: two years at a middle sohcol and three years at high sohcol. I’ve had three teachers: one which was absolutely perfect, one which was horribly severe and unable to understand the difficulty of learning Spanish, and a third that is okay. I’ve always been interested in learning, but after five years, I don’t think I know as much as I should.Be sure to be very understanding towards students, especially those who are interested and are trying to learn. I would be very interested in books that have English on one side and Spanish on the other. Maybe even try talking to your students in Spanish for periods in order to submerse them in the language.I don’t disagree with the games or the cultural foods but I take Spanish because I want to learn how to speak it, not how to cook. What ways did you find the most helpful in learning Spanish? Utilize these same methods in teaching your students.Make sure the students realize that they can learn the language and that it isn’t some unsurmountable task. Offer support. Speak to them in Spanish they can understand and that they will find useful, but increase the difficulty in order to stretch their knowledge.While textbooks are an important part of education, I think they should be lesser so with language. Language is learned by exposure, submersion, and repetition. I didn’t learn English by reading a textbook: I grew up around people who spoke it constantly and naturally I got the hang of the language. I think the same should apply for Spanish. While the sohcol can’t afford a class trip to Mexico, just speaking in Spanish can go a long way. Maybe even use props you could act like a store clerk and customer and create a mock transaction.What about grading students off of effort and progress, rather than just the correct answer ? Students often forget to *learn* but instead just seek the correct answer. That answer will earn them an A, although they may not have to know the necessary concepts required to understand Spanish. Tell the class that you understand Spanish is difficult to learn, and *demand* that any student with a question should call you. Perhaps you can offer an e-mail address or phone number where they can reach you if they have a question.I find the best teachers are those that modify an existing curriculum to better suit the class. Maybe you can create sheets of examples that illustrate the examples. Maybe even print off a page from a Spanish website and read it out loud while the students have a printed copy. I find that sometimes I am able to read text, but have difficulty with the verbal aspects unless I rehearse it.I can’t wait for the day when I can pull up a Wikipedia article in Spanish, or check out a Stephen King book at the Spanish section in the library, and be able to read it with little difficulty. I applaud you as a teacher for making an effort to instill interest in your students. I think if teachers had asked me to read a bilingual book or listen to them talk at a level that pushed my knowledge of Spanish, I’d be a lot farther in the right direction than I am today.Maybe this is a really bad idea but how about teaching your students to insult in Spanish? Nothing vulgar but maybe just draw out pictures and have students make fun of the characters.Any Spanish readers, bilingual books, or movies in English with Spanish subtitle or vice versa are my most valuable resources. Maybe even have students write in Spanish, or have them translate an English paragraph into Spanish. Tell students you will be light on the grading tell them it is more important for them to stretch their knowledge versus just using what they are comfortable with in order to ensure good grades.Good luck!!
