It's hard to get along in the world if you can't communicate. Back in caveman days, a few grunts sufficed, but now that you're working with folks around the world, knowing more than a single language is going to make your life a whole lot easier. If you didn't have the foresight to pay attention in foreign language class in school, maybe it's time to catch up.

EasyWords is an application that can help you with learning a language, or with remembering at least some of what they threw at you in school. Just fire it up and it sits there in the System Tray, and every three minutes it will pop up a question for you about your target language. It comes with English, German, Turkish, and other languages already installed. Your responses can be in the form of fill-in-the-blank or multiple choice, whichever way works better for you. And it's smart enough not to waste time asking you what you already know; rather, it will drill you more on the stuff you mess up.

EasyWords is a free download. It's a Windows application, and requires version 3.5 of the .NET Framework.
