Talk is aimed at intermediate level learners who have already
built up some confidence listening to and speaking their
target language. The interactive activites will help
to further develop fluency and understanding of the language.
There are 10 interactive lessons featuring topics such as
food, weather, directions, sentence construction and animals.
Once you've built up knowledge, try the TV quiz for a challenge,
or the dictation practice to improve listening and writing
skills. We know this style of learning works as it's how
we learn as children; from constant repetition
by parents and other adults. Once you've clicked on the
life belt to see what's required of you, then click on the
question mark for the repetitive element and you'll be surprised
at how soon the different sounds sink into the brain. It's
similar to when you visit a country - at first it's difficult
to understand anything, but you gradually manage to pick
out words until you are constructing more and more complex
sentences and improving fluency.
Talk is available in versions for learning the following
languages: Afrikaans, Arabic, Cantonese, Czech,
Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek,
Hawaiian, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Irish, Italian,
Japanese, Maltese, Mandarin, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese,

Turkish, Welsh, Xhosa and Zulu
