TELL ME MORE is a software package that assists students in improving their language skills in a variety of methods. The software is available in the CHASS Laundry (Language and Computer Labs Building) 214 computer lab. The software enables students to practice their language skills in the areas of vocabulary, reading, writing, and speaking. One special feature of the software allows students to practice pronunciation of words and sentences and provides instant feedback in the form of a graphical representation to show the student how well they performed. Some language packs also allow students to learn about the culture of the geographic regions where the languages are spoken. CHASS has a license for the following languages:
- English (ESL)
There are also other exercises within the TELL ME MORE software to build different skills: Word association games, gapfills, mystery phrases, word order exercises, dictation, and crossword puzzles to help you remember the vocabulary and develop your listening and reading skills. There are two learning modes to choose from within the TELL ME MORE language software:
- Choose whatever activity and topic you want.
- Guided mode
- Takes you through lessons one at a time but allow you to choose topics and exercises.
Who should use it?
Some students are assigned activities within the TellMeMore software system as part of their language course at NC State University, however, the software is available to all students during open lab hours. The software is recommended by the leadership of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures as a supplement to all students serious about improving their language skills.
