For absolute beginners, the "Talk Now!" series is for people who want to learn a language quickly with an emphasis on learning essential vocabulary.
The "word practice" section consists of a list of words in a given topic which are pronounced one by one while displaying a picture and the written word or phrase in both the target language and the pre-selected help language. Each phrase or word can then be practised by recording your own voice, playing it back and comparing your pronunciation with the native speakers on the CD-Rom.
The topics covered are: First words; Food; Colours; Phrases; The Body; Numbers; Time; Shopping and Countries. Each topic can also be printed out in the form of a picture dictionary for reference.
To consolidate the language learnt and to test your knowledge there are games, graded into two levels, plus a challenging memory game. Progress can be monitored by checking the total score and awards can be printed when a high score is achieved. <
System requirements:- Windows 2000 or later- Mac OS X 10.3.9 or above- CD ROM Drive (+ computer microphone)- You can also upload words onto your iPod
