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.

It was not very good. I was expecting to learn Luganda properly and unfortunately I got a CDROM which would be better suited to kids trying to learn a few words rather than a serious adult learner. And plus my Luganda speaking friend told me that a lot of the words where actually wrong!

The program feels to me to be very cheaply made, lacks in interest and is overly simplistic.

A short additional "module" that covered some very basic grammar would be really great. I downloaded the audio file to my ipod - but it's just all the luganda words and phrases (which isn't actually that many) so it's no good for listening to on the go as there is no English translation with it.

The games in the program are ok to learn to recognise the words, but there is no proper activity to help you actually to recall and be able to pluck the word or phrase from memory to use it. The characters are all caucasian, which I find odd. There is no way to slow down the audio (which I have had on other language packages) so if you don't catch it, you just have to repeat it over and over in vain hope. The sound made by the female and male voices is actually quite different so that's not helpful either.

But, the thing is, without spending lots of money this seems to be the only package out there for learning the basics. So look around first before you give in and get this.
