Learning English with Talkman


Sony’s PSP language tool, Talkman, hasn’t been the strongest selling point for the system. However, if you’re country hopping Talkman is actually a useful device. It packs in a handful of languages on a UMD disc with voice recordings of key phrases said by Max, the series multilingual bird. While the previous Talkman programs were in essence flashy dictionaries, Talkman Shiki: Shabe Lingual Eikaiwa uses Max to teach players English. The video below shows to people playing around with the upcoming program, a woman in her 20s and a man in his 30s. Compared to the other language training games, Talkman appears to be the most advanced to teach conversational skills since you can practice with Max.
