For many students, the most difficult part of learning a language is learning vocabulary. Even after grammar concepts are learned, a student of a language must still learn thousands of words to become fluent in the language. This IQP work presents a PC-based computer program to assist in the memorization of vocabulary that was written. The programming language is Sun Java v. 1.4.2. The program uses several original features and ideas developed by the author in order to help the student learn vocabulary more efficiently. These features are discussed in detail in the text. Also, the structure of the program and the associated documentation or "the user manual" are thoroughly described. The program runs on an ordinary PC with any operating system, such as Windows or GNU/Linux, to name a few, since Java is a portable programming language.
