TutorScreens is an intuitive but complex learning tool, a mind-map of English grammar and vocabulary, which will help you to understand better and faster, and to use what you have learned in your interactions with English speakers. It focusses on the phrases, vocabulary and grammar of spoken and written English of a good level - and the inter-connections between these elements.

It is good for students of English as a Foreign Language working on their own or at a school (it is compatible with any method of study). It is particularly good if the teacher is also trained in the use and content of TutorScreens (see below for lists of teachers and schools). It is also good for trainee or non-MT teachers.

You can see it in action here - part of the Vocabulary section:

TutorScreens runs on Windows, Linux and Mac computers.

Other platforms, such as iPad, iPhone, Wii and Android normally require jailbreaking to install DosBox (technical support is not yet available).

"Congratulations on a piece of easy-to-use software!"

"Most ambitious English Language Teaching software I've ever seen"
EFL Gazette

"Teachers have taken to it, and students enjoy using it"

Free Downloads
TutorScreens Tests beta

This will download a fully-functional sub-group of the TutorScreens pads* - the four test pads. The answers are built-in and the software establishes your level, a study plan and a detailed report. Clickable links are built into the answer screens to lead you further in your study if you have the full General or Business versions.

TutorScreens Tests will be installed at c:\tsctests and an icon will (if you want) be put on your desktop. The icon will be a DosBox icon you can, of course, change it in the usual way for a TutorScreens icon to be found in the same directory.
After installation we suggest you run the program from the desktop; when you finish - by pressing QUIT or ALT+Q - you will find yourself on a black DOS screen. Type exit at the c: prompt: (c:\>exit) to return to your normal operating system.

Installation:
Install requirements: Jailbreak iPad, with Cydia installed. Installation: a) Start cydia; b) goto manage->Sources; c) Add the following source. http://www.litchie.net/cydia DosPad Beta is recommended. Some facts that your may want to know: Based on DOSBOX 0.74; Kudos to DOSBOX team for making this possible!
COPY command can copy a hyper-linked file. For example, c:\> copy www.dosgamesarchive.com/files/mario.zip A bullt-in UNZIP command can unzip the files you just downloaded. NOTE: The zip file name should either be all upper case or all lower case. c:\> unzip mario.zip Automatically mount /var/mobile/Documents as disk C. So if you know how to SSH to your iPad, you probably can transfer a large set of files inside this directory. Troubleshooting Please make sure your game can run in desktop dosbox first! If you have error during installation, try to remove the previous version before installing update version. If dospad doesn't show up after install, you may need to reboot your device. If you can't launch games or game can't be saved, please check the permission of game files, and make sure dospad has write permission to them. You can use iFile from Cydia to apply permission change to a folder recursively. (by DA Dzi)
