Though you’ve probably never heard of these guys before, this is actually the world’s best selling language learning software for beginners! There’s probably better programs out there, but you will pay 10 times more for them.
This versatile software CD-ROM installs on any Windows PC or Mac (OS 10.3.9 or higher). It even has files you can transfer to your iPod for language learning on the go!
What will I learn?
Simply, to keep on listening. When a word comes up that we dont recognise, we often stop listening because were focusing on that one word and nothing else. This program lets you grasp the gist of what someones saying without getting hung up on the words you dont understand.
You will develop your practical knowledge of Irish Gaelic. There are 10 different games covering numbers, conversations, descriptions, sentence building, directions and dictation practice. These activities cover a wide range of subjects and give you important practical skills that you can use immediately.
Will it work for me?
If your Irish Gaelic is good enough to follow basic conversations, but you still need to practice, World Talk is for you.
Everything youll hear in the program is in Irish Gaelic, but you dont need to know every word before you start. Listen for key words that you already know, then pick up new words in the same way you would when talking to a native speaker.
How does it work?
Play interactive language games and earn points for every game you play. High scorers can go on to win bronze, silver and gold awards, which you can print out as a record of achievement.
Speak and write in Irish Gaelic. Record yourself and compare your pronunciation with a native speaker, then test your written Irish Gaelic with four dictation exercises.
Youll start to think in Irish Gaelic! World Talk is an immersive experience: in this program you will only hear Irish Gaelic. Youll learn to associate the language with memorable images — not just the equivalent words in your own language. This means youll start thinking in Irish Gaelic, which will make you quicker at understanding and recalling words.
