Amazon.com Review

KidSpeak Spanish French German Italian Japanese Hebrew is a double CD-ROM featuring six comprehensive language programs. It is fun and easy to use and will help multilingual children practice a choice of different languages through a range of games, songs, and puzzles.

Each of the different language programs is an immersion program, so all the instructions are in the chosen language. For this reason, younger children who are not so confident with the basics of the language may need adult support. More confident children will quickly pick up what they are expected to do and will be able to work independently through the games. There is also a very useful help option which explains the choices of games in English.

Having chosen the language that they wish to work on, children can then play a range of games and listen to songs to consolidate the vocabulary that has been introduced. Most of the games can be played at three levels of difficulty. The games include activities such as identifying fruit, colouring fruit appropriately, pairs games with pictures and words, identifying animals, ordering pictures, setting given times on clocks, and putting objects into a backpack. A wide range of vocabulary is consolidated, such as numbers, the alphabet, animals, objects, times, colours, fruits and vegetables, the weather, transport and leisure activities. A set of online activities, which can be printed out, will also help to review what children have learned.

KidSpeak Spanish French German Italian Japanese Hebrew would be a very useful buy for children ages 5 to 12 who are multilingual or who are learning a range of languages at school. It is also ideal for a parent who wants to introduce their child to a new language. --Amanda York ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars There must be a better bang for your buck.
I bought this software on the recommendation of some software review site, and I must say my 9 year old daughter and I were disappointed. The graphics are sometimes hard to make out on the screen. (The animation altogether isn't very appealing at all, but that's not why I bought it . . . )And my daughter kept repeating, "But I want to learn sentences!" It's just an okay introduction if you want to learn the names of fruits and vegetables.

1-0 out of 5 stars I could not run the software on window XP
The software is too old to run on the window XP professional. I could not use it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome For Kids
KidSpeak 6-in-1 is an awesome product for kids to have fun with and learn several languages(Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Hebrew). The animation is very fun and my kids really love this. I love the fact that my child will talk to me in a different language and I'm sure other parents would agree. When it comes down to it, Transparent Language did an awesome job with this software and I couldn't be more satisfied with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Language Learning For Kids
KidSpeak 6-in-1 is my child's favorite thing to do on the computer. There are many fun games and activities to do in KidSpeak which teaches a child foreign language. The cartoon animation and the characters are very entertaining for my child who spends hours at a time playing this game. This is a good way to have a child exposed to foreign languages which are easier to learn at a younger age. Before you know it, your child will be talking to you in another language. KidSpeak 6-in-1 has 6 languages included with it (Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Hebrew) meaning there is plenty for a child to learn and do in the program. I would recomend this program for all children because it is educational yet fun at the same time.

3-0 out of 5 stars I have Windows ME
I haven't really been able to run this software, I think it's because I have ME. I have used it before on my sister-in-law's computer and thought it was a great way to grab a young child's interest in another language. ... Read more

It's not bad at all; the new game, Graffiti, is quite addictive.
It's not intended to begin from the scratch, but is a good method to go further, if you have just the basis; it's a pity there's no division in units.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn Gaelic!!!
This program is great! I had been looking for Gaelic language learning software for some time before I had found this and I am very happy I did. This software has so much to offer for learning Gaelic. I really appreciated the extra online features that expand and support your learning, Transparent Language really goes the extra mile by offering this. Irish Now immerses you into the language with conversation practices that feature video and audio plus you actually speak back with a microphone for the software to analyze your answers. To me this means I can experience an element of realism that makes me almost feel like I'm holding a conversation with someone in Gaelic. The software contains a tremendous amount of the Gaelic Language to learn in many different ways, which will keep you busy for some time. Overall, I couldn't be more happy with this purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars Try this!!! Its good!!
I wish I had found this sooner. This product is great, it works exactly how it is supposed to. I bought this to obviously learn Gaelic and found that it was very good. It really helped me to develop my language skills in many ways. I found several features that really helped me work with my pronunciation. The audio features are so good that you can hear every word said by a native speaker of Gaelic. For practicing there are a bunch of games that you can play that are really good practice. My favorite feature was the conversation practice because there are so many of them for different situations and I found them quite useful also. All in all, this is a great program for language learning.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it
I love this product. I really enjoy learning Irish Gaelic through it because it has so much to offer. The games are great, the audio features are so amazing and it is just a well done product in general. I would highly recomend this to anyone looking to learn Irish Gaelic.

5-0 out of 5 stars Want to Learn Irish Gaelic? Use this
Finding this program was like finding a four leaf clover. Previously, I had tried audiotapes, books, ect. but I learned more from this product in a few nights than from weeks of study with other products. Irish Now concentrates on four areas of language skills, Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing, and Vocabulary & Grammar. The audio features are so incredible that you can check to see if you are pronouncing words correctly. The videos make it possible to follow a conversational dialogue with scenes which help in understanding the context. I was able to gain a vast vocabulary through the games and large amounts of content. I would suggest anyone try Irish Now if you are trying to learn Gaelic. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars 101 Languages WOW
101 Languages Of The World is a fascinating product. Not only can you learn the basics of many more common languages, but you can learn uncommon languages like Macedonian or Swazi. The great variety offered in this product makes it well worth the buy. There are many interactive games that help you to practice and learn the language(s). The audio features are incredible. There are native speakers for all the languages so you can hear the correct pronunciations and even speak into the computer so it can compare your pronunciation with that of the native's. 101 Languages of the World is great for learning a huge variety languages, for all purposes and for all levels of study.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great buy
I am very glad I bought this program. While it is true that the instruction is strictly beginner's level, and the native script is missing for most non-Latin based languages, this is still a great tool if you want to sample a large number of languages and decided which ones to take further with a more detailed course. This is also great for people studying a more exotic language for which there aren't any stand-alone audio programs for you to practice pronunciation.

But the biggest bonus for me was the included Global Writer word processor which allows you to type in all kinds of scripts, including Japanese, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Korean, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Persian, Hindi and many, many others. This program alone was worth the twenty bucks! No more playing around with Unicode or fooling with special characters in Word. This is the best software value I've found in years.

If I had one complaint it would be that some minor languages are included, like Breton, Galician, and Quechua, but some major languages, like Cantonese, spoken by over 50 million Chinese, and many languages of India are not included.

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW
Great things come in tiny packages, I saw this on sale for $9.00 at circuit city, and though skeptical it would be worth much, thought $9.00 isn't much of a gamble. This was like a slot machine that paid off! I am just blown away by the quality of this program and the extent of language instruction involved. Granted, this is NOT a program on which to found your study of your choice language, but as a supplement and interactive aid on DOZENS of languages, you will find plenty to learn. Where this program is especially helpful is with minor languages where there just aren't many resources or opportunities to hear native speakers, or build a vocabulary. I'm personally interested in more exotic languages, such as Bengali, Lithuanian, Slovene, etc., and can now listen to the dialogues and speak along with the script, and I've committed much vocabulary to memory. This CD lets you hear genuine native speakers converse on a myriad of topics, and then test your knowledge of what you've learned. If you are interested in MANY languages, and like comparing various types (Russian w/ Polish; Sicilian w/ Italian; Finnish w/ Estonian, etc.) then you have a great research tool. Now if you're looking to bone up on a major language such as Spanish, French, etc., there is a good dose of vocab here, but you're probably better off with one of the many dedicated audio or software language programs - though assuming you too can buy this program cheap, what you will get as far as dialog practice more than justifies the price. The real value here, however, is the info and practice you get with rarer languages, and for the simplicity and compactness of this little program. Neat!

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Worth The Money
I am a student that studies 5 languages currently. I am very much into languages and I thought this would help me. I bought this software specifically for Icelandic, Vietnamese, Arabic, German, and Inuktitut. Turns out that the only helpful and useful language title was German. Most, actually all of the other languages just gives phrases to practice, and it is the exact phrases as the other languages. It makes learning a language fun, GUARANTEED! Dont purchase this software if you would like to learn a language that is on here. If you are really interested in learning a specific language, purchase Rosetta Stone Software. It may be a little bit of money, but it is definatley worth it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Diverse and Adaptable Product
101 Languages of the World is a very satisfying product for what it is. The great diversity offered in the product is amazing, being able to learn 101 languages with a piece of software is unbelievable. I really love the fact that in one instance I can be learning Farsi and the next be practicing my Tagalog. It is truely a great product because it is well put together software and has immense content. ... Read more

The CD has minimal content.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn Norwegian the fun way
I am a Scot living in Australia who married a Norwegian. I wanted to learn some Norwegian ready for when I make my first visit to Norway. So the place to start was the 'Talk Now! Norwegian' CD which I thought it might be a fun way to learn some basic Norwegian, and it was.
I found the CD easy to install on my computer and easy to work through the different lessons, covering first words, food, phrases, time etc. The aim is to make 100% on each of the quizzes that are with the lessons, so far I have not quite reached that point, just missing the odd question or two in a couple of the quizzes. You can print the picture dictionaries as a study aid, you can also print your score award sheets.
I would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn language basics. Other products from the Eurotalk company are 'World Talk' which is at the intermediate level, and 'Vocabulary Builder' which is for children 3 - 12years (but might be also be helpful for some of the bigger kids too).
Enjoy. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars I felt like I wasted my money.
After the glowing review I decided to try this product out. After only 3 hours this disc was useless to me. There is very little information on here let alone usefull information. In no time one can complete the entire program. There aren't any pronouns included which I expected would have minimally been there. The disc also can't be run off of the hard drive so one has to wait for the program to load every few seconds while listening to the life of ones cd drive wear away. A great idea that has fallen horribly short. A simple phrase book would have been more beneficial.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, a great buy for the beginner
In New York Finnish language courses are hard to come by. I have been trying to teach myself to read, speak and hopefully write Finnish for years so I could speak with my cousins and grandmother overseas. It was a daunting task because books left me uninspired and tapes just don't work for me. Finally as a last ditch effort I took a chance on this program. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the program actually makes the process of learning language fun. The program and quizzes are colorful and engaging and manage to combine, listening, reading, understanding and speaking into one fun exercise. I have progressed with this program 100% faster than with the methods I've tried before. I definitely recommend this program to anyone who would like to start learning Finnish.
For those who are a bit more advanced or are anxious to get to the next level the Intermediate level for this program is World Talk Finnish. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The Instant Immersion American Sign Language package is a four-CD-ROM set that will get you started in learning the language of the deaf. The four discs attempt to meet the individual learning styles and needs of students of ASL.

The SigningAvatar Friends disc is the most visually impressive of the four. Using the same video animation as you'd find in some of today's popular games, the characters come to life and interact with you in sign. This is a flexible application, allowing you to adjust the signing speed and the angle at which you view the signs, and select the character you favor most. The characters can each translate phrases for you, of any length, or you can follow along as they tell you their life story.

The SignLink disc will be a great supplemental resource for those looking to find specific signs for words in English or to learn about deaf culture. The lexicon provides over 2,000 signs, presented in clear, QuickTime format. Also on this disc are other sections that are much like a printed book, covering ASL parameters (like hand position, movement, non-manual behavior, and so on), grammar, and American deaf culture. This disc is definitely good for practice and felt very inviting to us.

The other two discs, Personal Communicator and HyperSign Kids, were more disappointing. Comparing the high video quality and wide-reaching content presented in the first two discs, we found that these two had little to offer. There was little age-specific content on the Kids disc (other than a child's voice pronouncing each word); in fact, both of these discs shared poor-quality video and uninviting interfaces. The picture identification and matching games on the children's version were the best feature of both of these discs overall.

A note about install: each disc functions as its own standalone package. Unfortunately, none required a system restart or indicated that one was necessary. However, we found that the restart is necessary after each installation and trying to install another package without restarting led to system problems for us. The SignLink disc had additional problems because it required the installation of a very old version of QuickTime (2.1) and would not proceed without installing it.

Overall, we highly recommend the first two discs of this set as strong learning tools for those interested in learning American Sign Language and getting a sense of American deaf culture. --Emilie Herbst ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Instant Immersion American Sign Language
This is a very good program. It helps you learn the proper hand formations and gives you a visual example of how to do each sign. It also has a conversations section where you can learn to read the signs. It's almost like having a study buddy. I recommmended it to a friend. I rated it a four because a few words are not in it, but I just looked them up in my sign dictionary.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for a beginner
I bought it a few years ago, and still I use it as my reference for many unknown signs or phrases. 4 CD's come in total. There's one that's called SignLink, and it's the best. It gives you a background on American Sign Language and it's so far the most helpful. The other 3 CD's are ok but mostly slow on my system (Windows XP). But try them first and see what you think. All in all, they're helpful if you're starting to learn ASL. I really recommend this program. And to you, reader, if you buy it, I recommend discipline to keep up with your learning program.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great Marketing for a Threadbare Product
The first couple of reviews are most apt.

Bad product, poor implementation.

It's cheap for a reason.

1-0 out of 5 stars If you're serious about learning ASL, pass this one by...
I've been signing for almost ten years, and my wife works professionally as an interpreter. I recently picked this package up as a handy refresher to keep my skills sharp. For under $$$, it seemed like a good deal. Unfortunately, this suite of "learning tools" left a lot to be desired. First of all, if you're using XP, expect a whole slew of compatibility problems. The few programs I was able to get working suffered from very poor interface design, and worse yet, presented the user with incorrect information. For example, the Personal Communicator lets the user type in English phrases to get a video ASL interpretation. What the program displayed for you was a literal English word-order translation of the phrase. Words that did not appear in the sparse word list were then fingerspelled. There was absolutely no consideration of ASL grammar or structure. Thus, a sentence like "How long have you been an interpreter?" was translated with the literal signs for "how" (as in, "how does this work?"), "long" (as in "that road is long"), "have" (as in "can I have some water?"), and so on. If you've ever taken a real ASL course, you know how wrong this is. A true ASL representation should have read something like "interpreter how-long (time) you?" In all fairness, creating a program advanced enough to do such an accurate conversion would probably cost much more, but by presenting new ASL students with this sort of misrepresentation is destructive to the language rather than constructive. Another program, the English-ASL dictionary, is nothing more than a copy of a University of Michigan ASL web site, not a carefully designed learning aid for home use.

Bottom line, if you're really serious about learning this wonderful language, do yourself a favor and enroll in a class at a local college or community center. It is the ONLY way to truly learn this language and begin to experience deaf culture. If you want to practice at home, I would recommend The American Sign Language Dictionary 10th Anniversary Edition. It's far more accurate and does a much better job of teaching ASL grammar, deaf culture, and sign vocabulary.

This is a nice program that shows you pictures and pronounces the words. And has quiz games where you match one of a choice of pictures to the word sounds. The games are very helpful in developing recognition of spoken Khmer words.

Since Khmer is so different from English, you can not learn Khmer from a book alone. You need something that will pronounce the words so that you can hear the sounds. I had some of my Cambodina friends listen to it and they said the pronouncenations were good.

I recommend this for the absolute beginner of Khmer. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars do not buy this item
I have given this item 1 star because there is nothing lower. It might be a good product, I will never know. The first thing you will find is that in order to view the product you will need to download a software package costing an additional $15. The next thing you will find is that if you want a refund from Amazon, you will pay the shipping because this is not their fault (even though this is not mentioned in the description). The next thing you will find is that if you delete the program on your computer you will lose shared files.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK, but . . .
Everything said in the editorial review is true. This method is a lot of fun and the interactive bit really helps. The most useful feature is getting to see a picture, record the word or phrase in Croatian, and then playback your recording next to a recording of a native speaker. Obviously, your computer must have a microphone.

So why the so-so rating? I bought this same title for German and there are four CDs. It had a basic CD, a more advanced CD, a mystery game where you used your knowledge to solve the mystery, and a talking dictionary. I thought I'd be getting the same package, but apparently they haven't developed past the first CD for Croatian. And the one CD isn't much cheaper than what I paid for the whole German package.

There are nine lessons on the basic CD, each with about 15-20 words or phases. In two days, I've already aced six of the nine. Obviously, I'm still not quite ready to carry on a conversation. Contrast this to the German edition which lasted me several weeks despite my already knowing a good bit of German.

So while their method is a good one, and the presentation is very professional, I can't recommend this unless you'll be happy just knowing things like colors, food, numbers, etc. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Very exciting, if you want to learn to tell the time.
Well, there's scarcely 10 verbs, many international words in it, like Cola, burgher, a.s.o. .
It doesn't teach anything about verbs, clauses, mutations, prepositions, and all that silly stuff that make you really able to carry on a conversation and to say what you mean.
However, if you want to spend a little time instead of dozing, and don't pretend to learn a language, there's nothing better- save, perhaps, crossword puzzles.
If you know a bit of Gaelic, the only difficuilt game is telling the time, and it's the one that teaches you some phrases you can use ( unless you have bad luck and decide to say I was stolen my passport in Scottish Gaelic- better you don't, anyway you can speak English with cops ).
I admit I said something slightly different in Amazon.co.uk.
As a matter of fact, the more I study Scottish Gaelic, the less I appreciate that game.
If you want to learn Scottish gaelic, try something else- like Colloquial Scottish, by Kathleen Spadaro et al. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars it's ok
This product really doesn't have that many words in it. The games are kind of fun, but it doesn't actually teach you the language......just a few words. Mostly it's just matching the picture they associate the word with, with the word. If you want to learn a few words its useful, but for learning the language, it's bad.

5-0 out of 5 stars EuroTalk Romanian CD
This beginners language really delivers. Never thought learning a foreign language could be so fun. Wish to buy the Advanced Romanian when it comes out. ... Read more
