The GramEx programs are intended to provide tuition and reinforcement in essential areas of foreign language grammar to:
GramEx will run under most Windows operating systems up to and including Windows XP. It will not run under Windows Vista or Windows 7.
The format of the exercises is essentially multiple choice and gap-fill, but the application offers context-sensitive explanations to users - they can be viewed even when the correct answer has been given. The items are presented in random order each time the application is run, thus enhancing the re-usability of the material. Errors are recorded and then represented in a 'remedial run' when the exercise has been completed. An InfoGram help file provides full information on all the grammatical topics covered, and when called up, defaults to the most relevant topic for the example the student is tackling.
