Review

You'll find you can't drag yourself away - in short, you can't stop yourself learning.' -- What PC Magazine

Manufacturer's Description

The Talk Now! Range is the world's best selling language learning CD-ROM series for beginners, used by more than eight million people to date. Talk Now! caters for all types of beginner: young learners from the age of 4, families, students and people going abroad with no knowledge of the language. It is simple to use, with no installation required - the program runs straight from the CD, and is compatible with the latest versions of Mac and Windows.

Eurotalk software is completely intuitive - the simple interface means that learning is as easy as pointing and clicking. Speech recording allows you to record your voice and compare it with native speakers. Quiz yourself with 2 levels of difficulty to test what you've learnt - earn points and monitor your progress, then take on the memory man and get the maximum possible 1800 points to receive the gold award! Learn at your computer - or alternatively, print out pages of the printable picture dictionary, or you can learn on the move using the iPod application.

Above all, EuroTalk discs are designed to be fun. Research in the early 1990s at the University of California revealed that memory is greatly improved when accompanied by fun and laughter. Our quizzes, games and stories provide this and you will be amazed how much you remember after a surprisingly short time devoted to a disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Talk Now! Kurdish 3 Nov 2009
I bought this cd to help me learn Kurdish as my boyfriend speaks fluent Kurdish and English so i wanted to make the effort to learn some Kurdish so i could talk with his friends and family. I have found the cd very helpful and have picked up new words very quickly with the help of all the colourful illustrations and games on the cd. The only downside is that it doesnt have words such as connectives so i know the words for objects, food, body parts and so on but find it difficult to put a sentence together without the connectives! I would however recommend this product without hesatation but would advise it is also bought with a dictionary as well. Hope this is helpful and good luck to everyone trying to learn :)

A good little CD from which you can definitely learn the more basic side of the language and like most people who seem to have bought it, if you just want to learn a couple of words to throw around at your BF/GF however if you are deadly serious about learning Kurdish efficiently as a fluent language I can not recommend this cd for you. basicaly the way the CD works is much like a picture book, with pronunciations if you click on the words. thats pretty much it from there on its a list of relative words to the topic you choose to study (i.e. first words, colours, the body, numbers, food, phrases, shopping and time - i think that's all the topics) and small games which have you matching words/pronunciations to pictures. I personally felt that it doesn't challenge you to learn, or stick in your head very well. like you could go through an exercise relatively fast due to the simple structure of the programme but you haven't really learnt 100% of the material covered and like someone has already said it doesn't cover connectives nor does it cover the grammatical side of the language either so you might not be able to have a fluent conversation with any Kurds even after learning the content provided. its very much a quick-learn pick up and go CD which is very handy, but if you've had experience with Rosetta Stone or have used quality audio books by the likes of Michel Thomas, then you might want to search around for something bit more advanced in content before picking this up. Yes it is an "Absolute Beginners" resource, but what I have found out when learning languages, starting with a core foundation to build the language around is very important, rather than simply providing words and the relative translation and to then rely purely on memory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Learning Kurdish cd rom. 20 July 2010
This product is very good for learners as it helped me to pronouce words properly.
I think it is better for complete beginners as i knew some words as my boy friends and his family are kurdish.
Overall it is a really good purchase as you learn how to say the phrases etc.
