Just a quick note of appreciation. I'm using your software for a student I teach who has many learning difficulties, but he is thrilled (and motivated) to be working with your software. Please continue the excellent work, and best of luck going forward.
Ed, Canada.

We are a homeschool family and we have been using your site for nearly 10 months now...we think you're great!

Keep up the fantastic work you do!
Warmest Regards
Sarah, New Zealand

I have been using your programs for years now and am really glad for a chance to say how FAB they are. They are better than any other I've found for educational purposes and a fraction of the price. All the kids who have used them at my school LOVE them and I think you are a very very clever man!!

The opening screen is the Main Menu, which you can return to from each section of the program by clicking on the "M" button. The functions in the drop down menus in the top left of your screen are self-explanatory i.e. quit, closes the program. Pressing Alt and F4 also closes the program.

The menu buttons, Maps, Cities, Counties and Quiz take you to that section of the program and these are explained below. Exit also closes the program.

Maps

Use the magnifying glass plus and minus buttons to zoom in and out and view basic maps of England, Europe and the World. The Print button will send the Map on view to your printer. M returns you to the Main Menu.

Cities

Click on a red square on the map to show details about that city. Click on the missing word in the text covered by a black box to show four souvenirs that Grey Olltwit could have bought here. The uncovered word should give a clue as to which object was chosen as a souvenir. Click on the one you think was chosen and score points for the correct one or lose points for the wrong one. Bonus stars from 1 to 10 will be awarded as you progress. These will be displayed on your certificate, which can be printed out at the end of this level.

After completion of this level you can stay and browse through the cities by clicking on each one. Remember London, which is not part of the scoring in this level but contains a small Map and extra red squares to click on, giving more information and some pictures of famous landmarks in the Capital City. You can send whatever is displayed on the screen at anytime by clicking on the Printer button. Clicking on the M button will take you back to the Main Menu but a further window will appear if you have been awarded a certificate for this level. Choose the Yes button to take you to the certificate level and print it out or No to return to the Main Menu.

Counties

In this level you simply click on the county on the map you think is the one highlighted in red. If right, it will change colour and present you with the next one. To help you, holding down the space bar at anytime will reveal all the County numbers. Holding down the space bar also reduces your score, so don't hold it down for too long. Gold stars are awarded as you progress through this level and are shown on your certificate.

You can send whatever is displayed on the screen at anytime by clicking on the Printer button. Clicking on the M button will take you back to the Main Menu but a further window will appear if you have been awarded a certificate for this level. Choose the Yes button to take you to the certificate level and print it out or No to return to the Main Menu.

Quiz

Here you are presented with a list of the souvenirs chosen at each City in the Cities level. You must match these with where you think the City is on the map. First click on a red square on the map and then click on the object you think was the souvenir from this city. If you are right then the city's name will appear and points awarded. Points are deducted if you are wrong. Gold stars are awarded as you progress through this level and are shown on your certificate.

This is followed by a general quiz on English Cities and Counties, including historical information. All the answers are contained in the text written about each city in the Cities level.

You can print whatever is displayed on the screen at anytime by clicking on the Printer button. Clicking on the M button will take you back to the Main Menu but a further window will appear if you have been awarded a certificate for this level. Choose the Yes button to take you to the certificate level and print it out or No to return to the Main Menu.

Thanks for the TERRIFIC software at a great price!

I've been a happy Olltwit user for years - I downloaded several of your programs back in '04, for my older son to use. Now it's time for my younger son to use them, and I've come back to your site to find 1) I owe you, and 2) you have more great stuff. I'm happy to pay up because I know the quality of your programs.
