Learning new words - another flashcard tool

A couple of days ago I wrote about 'Phase 6'. This is a software program that help you to learn new words. I like Phase6 a lot and I think it is good value for the price. The programmer is a young businessman (not a big faceless company) and I think we need to support small businesses which produce good products.

However, the 'open source' and 'shareware' software movement is also a good idea and yesterday I discovered an open source program that is very similar to Phase 6. You can install it and try it for free and if you like it you can make a donation to support the developers.

It is called 'jMemorize':
jMemorize is a free open-source Java application that manages your learning processes by using flashcards and the famous Leitner system. jMemorize makes memorizing facts not only more efficient but also more fun. It boosts your whole learning experience and features categories, statistics and a visually appealing and intuitive interface.

Try it out - I am sure it will help you learn your vocabulary much more quickly!
