Does anyone know of any software for randomly generating words?
I would love to get my hands on a program that could do this! It would be great in class.
I sometimes make lists of idioms and then get students to create a story. Each student must make a sentence which continues the development of the story and includes the next idiom on the list.
If there is software that can generate random words or idioms, I would love to know.

Maybe there is but I don't know where. It would be interesting to have and it wouldn't be too difficult to make (if you know programming which I don't know much at all).
If all else fails, there is always drawing pieces of paper out of a hat.
Yeah, I'm also lousy at program writing. I tried years ago (many, many years ago) in basic, but nothing ever worked. Maybe the cats were secretly tampering with my code!
Yeah, pulling strips from a hat would work, but it would be pretty time consuming to make the strips. Using a program it might also be possible to grade the difficulty level, for example;
Level B (basic) - 1500 word base vocab.
I (interm.) 3000
A (adv.) 4500
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Mike, why don't you try it? You are such a good artist.
Thanks Maj, but if you see my art you may change your mind. I have never been good at drawing programs (computer software), much less writing them.
I was talking about your pictures, there is sth beautiful in all of them, something poetic.

Thanks Maj, I'm flattered. Have you seen any of my pictures, or are you uncannily gifted? Emotion: smile
Don't forget that i can read your mind.[P]
Oh oh, I'd best be careful Emotion: smile Blushing Emotion: wink
