Summary: This product is not intended to start learning a language or to replace any other learning method. But it is definitely a fun way to help your study. Remember: although this is a game, studying is never that fun!
Summary: When i first bought this game i thought it was gonna be great and the microphone looked really cool but when i played on it it was so rubbish the micro phone didnt work so i went on the game mode which i thought might be a bit of fun but i went on it and all it did was say a couple of phrases and u...
Summary: This game is really great, it has helped with some basic language for Spansish and French. Although the Japanese is very hard in the Pronunciation Game. The Translator mode is brilliant and although often does not translate directly from voice does have a good stock of phrases that are useful.
Summary: This game is suitable and frustrating for perfectionists! Max the bird is really specific in what you say, but once you get it right the satisfaction is immense. In my opinion, it's best played in numbers where a group of friends can laugh at each other and cheer when they finally get it right.
Summary: Very good and quite clever voice recognition with the supplied microphone. Whether I'll become fluent in any of the languages using this is a different matter. I do like the idea of saying a phrase in English and Talkman translating into another language to show the waiter, or whoever, whilst on...
Summary: Couldn't get the microphone attachment to work at all, so all a complete waste of time and money as the language games cannot be played without it. I may have just been unlucky and I guess I could have sent it back if I could be bothered, so maybe you'll have better luck than me.
Summary: Purchased this game hoping that it would be a fun way to learn basic phrases in other languages for travel etc. Gets frustrating and boring quickly as the scores it gives you are really inconsistant. Navigation between menus and game modes is poor. Not much entertainment value.
Summary: I thought it was quite "groovy" but got very little use from my teenage "reluctant language learner". Get an ipod touch and down load some of the free language games - they have a lot more impact. [ Get an Ipod touch anyway - they are the business!]
Excerpt: Inleiding Stel je voor: je bent in het buitenland en je wil een voorbijganger iets vragen. Helaas kan de persoon in kwestie geen Engels, Nederlands, Duits of welke andere taal dan ook die jij wel spreekt. Dan zou Talkman een goede oplossing zijn, of toch niet?
Pros: Gameplay en leerzaamheid
Cons: Vertalen gaat traag en het geluid is soms wat onduidelijk
