Moebius Comunicacion S.L. has announced VerbBusters 2.0 for iOS, an essential utility for learners of English as a foreign or second language. It provides a complete set of resources for the practice of the English irregular verbs, including bilingual verb lists with audio, a quiz-type activity and a searchable database. Primarily intended as a practice and handy reference tool for self-study, VerbBusters can also be used as an ancillary activity in the classroom and is suitable for users of all ages.
Among the oldest and most common words in the English language, irregular verbs represent core vocabulary. They are used, not only to form past and perfect tenses, but also in the construction of passives, conditionals and reported speech. Mastering the irregular verbs puts learners on the fast track to improving performance across the board in English in a short time.
To this end, VerbBusters supplies a complete set of resources for learning, practising and revising the irregular verbs. It provides a quiz type activity on six levels of difficulty with scoring, error-highlighting and help functions. Verb lists with native language translations are provided for each level and the searchable database allows learners to hear the pronunciation of almost 180 of the most and least common irregular verbs.
VerbBusters is an essential part of the English learner's toolbox and can be used for extended study, quick reference or simply to put unexpected intervals of downtime to good use. The application can be used in English-English or Native Language-English modes and currently fully supports Portuguese, German, French, Spanish, and Italian. VerbBusters is a standalone application which does not collect any user data or connect to the Internet at any time.
VerbBusters 2.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category.
