This project was a little hard to access. A "unzipping program" was required to get to the powerpoint.  Once in th presentation a good explaination of how to move forward and back were there.  Especially in a foreign language, pronuncation is very important.  These words were clickable, so that sound file played.  The video from Youtube embedded was a nice touch as well, students really like little clips to break up the clicking.

It was quite easy to use, although it was unclear what exactly the backward icon was.  I found the font used throughout to be a little hard to read, maybe just use it for titles, then something easier on the eyes for the rest of the text.

Technical Remarks:

Because I could download and open this presentation, I could see that there was many review questions at the end, but....when in slide show, there is no way to get from 1 to any of the others, this needs to be fixed for students to show more of what they learned.

Time spent reviewing site: 20 minutes
