For centuries, effective learning of Portuguese has involved repetition and self-testing of the different verb conjugations by the student in his own time. Now this process has been brought up to date with VerbSquirt.

How VerbSquirt works
The need to conjugate Portuguese verbs on the fly can make spontaneous conversation difficult for even intermediate speakers of Portuguese.
VerbSquirt’s approach is to simulate the rapid recall and listening skills needed for a conversation involving Portuguese verbs, and to help the user improve those skills.
Instead of asking for conjugations based on a particular tense, VerbSquirt challenges the user to find the closest possible Portuguese translation for the English action they want to describe, or to identify the closest English translation for a particular action in Portuguese.
Once fluency improves, VerbSquirt helps the user gain familiarity with the different rules of conjugation for Portuguese verbs, and with the exceptions, leading to a better understanding of the subtleties of the language.
