Benkyou Studios Built in Dictionary supports various languages, and more will be added as time progresses.
The Dictionary allows you to look for words, hear how the sound via Speech Synthesis, and if you want to start learning them, you can add them to your Wordlist, and they will appear in the Quiz and Mouseflash
The dictionary supports word details, shown at the bottom of the dictionary screen... Search for a word, and where available you will get details about it
When Searching for Japanese, you will get a break down of the individual symbols, and examples which contain that word
Mouseflash is a mini flashcard, which appears onscreen neer your mouse cursor, it is designed to help you learn new words during your normal computer use.
The position and transparency are configurable, and you can use Speech Synthesis to hear the words as you see them.
Mouse flash works with all languages supported by Benkyou Studio
The Multi-choice Quiz is the main Study tool in Benkyou Studio, It will drill you on the words in your wordlist, and will adjust the frequency the words appear depending on how well you know them,
The quiz will pause and speed up to focus on the words you do not know. The quiz also supports Speech Synthesis, so you can hear the words you are studying
The wrong answers will vary every time you answer, sometimes they will be random answers, sometimes they will have just parts that are wrong (eg a single letter) to ensure you really know the correct answer
The quiz is programmed with common misspellings, and will try to trick you by using these in the wrong answers
For the Japanese language, the quiz knows what Japanese symbols have similar meanings, and what alternate pronunciations a symbol has, and will try to use these to trick you... this is like the JLPT N1 exam does - which itself is multiple choice.
The UI of Benkyou Studio can be customized, it can use your OS default colors, or one of the built in Themes, for bright vivid look, or subtle appearance, There are multiple provided Icon sets, and the UI supports multiple languages
Currently the UI can appear in English and Japanese, More Languages will be added later
