The English4Today Desktop Edition runs on your
personal computer (PC) and requires the Windows operating system.
There is not a version for Mac available yet although we are
planning one. It will run on all Windows systems from Win98
upwards. To use the Internet connection facility you will also
need an Internet connection.
You will need:
- Internet Explorer 6+ (installed on nearly all Windows machines)

One of the features of the Desktop edition is that it works
seamlessly with the Internet. From within the application you
can connect directly to the English4Today website and to all
of its features (if you have a membership). Updates, downloads
and new items are loaded directly into the desktop edition
and various resources sent directly to the software - e.g.
Tip of the Day, Quote of the Day and Vocabulary Builder. You
need, of course, to have an Internet connection but once this
is established everything you need is within the software.
When you go off-line you will have enriched the desktop application
with new materials as well as having been able to use all of
the Internet specific and English4Today online materials.
