Nova Development has announced new
language learning software, available in Spanish, French, German and Italian. The software works on Macs or PCs as well as iPods and other mobile listening devices. Each title costs $39.95.
Berlitz Premier language learning software includes instruction for beginning, intermediate and advanced users. The software includes real-world learning activities where users listen to actual conversations; multimedia content where users listen to native speakers; “flash card” learning with more than 1,000 vocabulary words and phrases; and advanced speech analysis that records, plays back and compares you to improve your accent and pronunciation.
Each Berlitz Premier title includes four audio CDs that you can listen to on your stereo. And word and phrase lists are provided for iPods and other MP3 players that match each module’s interactive flash card system.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later, G3 or faster, 128MB RAM, CD-ROM drive. iPods, Pocket PC 2002 devices and Palm OS 3 or 5-based systems with 500K available and 240 x 320 screen resolution are also supported.
