Abstract:This project is the design and implementation of learning-aided software in English language and the three basic languages we have in Nigeria (i.e. Yoruba, Igbo and Hausa Languages). This Project teaches and enlightens the pupils on an educational platform where they can learn in the languages listed above and have fun while learning as well. The introduction of Information Technology to education has been of great impact globally as its importance cannot be ignored. Educational Technology is the practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using and managing appropriate technological processes and resources. In the past decade, Computer Aided Learning (CAL) has been a term of increasing significance; it can also be referred to as Computer Based Instruction (CBI), Computer Aided Learning (CAL), or Computer Aided Instruction (CAI). Since computers were introduced into education, it has made impartation of knowledge an easy task for teachers. The use of technology in the educational sector has therefore made the process of learning and knowledge sharing an interactive and enjoyable activity.
