Lexogram proposes a wide variety of activities.

This Roadmap section describes what's currently under development, and what is planned for the future.

Social activities

Multiple-user online activities to help you improve your understanding and self-expression.

MeetMe

Create a profile page to describe yourself in the language you want to learn.

GlassHouse

A chat application with a built-in language-learning processor.

Registration/Login

Allows new users to register and existing users to log in

WhiteBoard

An add-on for GlassHouse that allows you to create images to complement your chat session

Web of Meaning

A multiple-user multi-dimensional web of all the expressions in every language
Cro-Mignon

A 3D online role-playing game where you team up with native speakers of the language you are learning to complete tasks together.

Socialising

Allows users to create a personal profile, to manage their contacts and interests, and to launch conversations in GlassHouse

Reputation

Create your own video presentation on a chosen topic, with an online audience to ask you questions, to show how well you can communicate.

Personal activities

Single-user offline applications to make repetitive tasks fun.

Multiple-language activities

Activities designed to work in any language.

Typing

Learn vocabulary and pronunciation as you type illustrated stories in your new language. Learn to touch-type in a new script, such as 日本語, русский язык or ภาษาไทย 

StoryBoard

Read illustrated stories, designed to introduce new vocabulary at a comfortable pace. View multiple illustrations for each new expression, to create a vivid mental image of each new meaning.

BrainwormsVowels

Watch the acoustic shape of the vowels sounds you create, and compare them to the vowel sounds made by native speakers. 

Overdrive

Speed up illustrated texts and word list to practise creating mental images.

Brainworms

Raise your own virtual "children" who insist on speaking in the language you are learning, and who will repeat a new expression over and over with increasingly explicit clues about its meaning, until you can work out what they are telling you.

Language-dependent applications

Every language has its particularities that you need to get used to. These applications help you understand how meaning is encoded in particular ways in particular languages.

Tones

For languages like Thai, Mandarin and Cantonese, where the tone used with a syllable changes its meaning

Genders

For languages like French, Russian and Spanish, to help you memorize the gender of different nouns

Declensions

For languages like German and Russian, where nouns change their form depending on how they are used

Conjugations

For languages like French and Spanish, where verbs change their form depending on the person and the tense

Phrasal verbs

For languages like English and German, where a verb may be formed by two separate parts, divided by intervening words
