As you know, the KDE-Edu project is doing quite well but we need more 
feedback from teachers and in several countries. 
We started to  "internationalize" a few programs and we would need data in 
several languages. We would also need to know if the application can be run 
in several countries, and how to make it work for several languages.

As a start, we would need feedback about KLearnSpelling.
(needs KDE2)
This program is intended to help pupils to learn to spell words. The 
interface is not so good at the moment.
We would like to get some lists of words that children must learn to spell in 
several languages. These words will also be used in other programs like 
KHangMan, KMessedWords and a flash-card program (and maybe more).
We would like teachers to tell us how they think their pupils could use such 
a program and what features would be useful for the teacher (having the score 
of each child, printable, ....)

We already have the help of one teacher and the ideas he has are very 
valuable as we, developers, don't see the software actually in use. If you 
have Linux in your classroom or if you have a little time to test the 
programs at home and participate at the improvement, we would be very 

You can subscribe to the kde-edu mailing list
and send here your suggestions/ideas to improve one of the existing software.
Or you can mail me and I'll pass it on.

Thanks a lot in advance!
