    Default software recommendations?

    Hi all
    I am teaching a group of airport people, ground staff and dispatchers who require very specific training strictly related to the job. As I have been unable to find enough relevant material I have had to create my own from scratch, very time consuming. Could anyone recommend software, preferably free, that can help with the generation of exercises of specific structures, eg requests, using airport vocabulary. Also, if anyone has used any worthwhile material in this area or has any recommendations I would be interested to hear about it.
    Thanks

    Two applications that come to mind are Hot Potatoes which can be downloaded and used on Windows, Mac, or Linux platforms. You can write multiple choice, matching, crossword exercises and put them on a website. I also use the online flash card application Quizlet for vocabulary work. It can be used to generate quizzes as well as for student practice.
