Very impressive! Your application is far more advanced than mine, which
simply uses the built in gui.ss teachpack as an executable. Mine is
specifically for conjugating one tense at a time and with one subject.

For example, in the subject field (this is in Spanish) one would put: "yo"
and in the infinitive field, for example, estar. The program would then
return "yo estoy".  Each tense is somewhat of an application unto itself.

Even though my program is different and much simpler, I would very much
appreciate you sending me your program. I'm mostly a Spanish person, and
although I have a friend helping me with the French version of the
application I would definitely be interested in seeing your program. I'm
truly fascinated by language. My goal is to become fluent in many languages,
so I wanted to create this verb conjugator to help others who might have the
same goal or people who just need help in their foreign language classes in
