Talk Now! is the world's best selling language learning CD-ROM series for beginners, used by more than three million people to date. It’s ideal for travellers, holidaymakers, business people, schoolchildren, students and families.
Anyone over 10 years will find the disc indispensable for improving listening, understanding and spoken language skills. There are nine topics: first words, food, colours, phrases, parts of the body, numbers, time, shopping and countries.
The games and quizzes included on the disc ensure that users have fun whilst using the disc, without realising that they’re learning. The "intelligent" software feature remembers words you get wrong and targets your weak points.
Each question that is answered correctly increases the user’s score - get an answer wrong and points will be lost. There are 1800 points in total to gain from the disc. A full score earns the user a 'Gold Award'.
Each topic contains listening practice, an easy game, a hard game, a printable dictionary as well as the opportunity to record your voice and hear how you sound in comparison to the two native speakers who tutor the user throughout the Talk Now! course.
Each of the target languages for Talk Now! has help available in an additional 102 languages. The disc localises automatically using the computer’s operating system language. There is also the option to click on the flag on the first screen to change the help language.

“I bought your Learn Malay CD today… I’ve only just begun, but I wanted to say how much I am enjoying it. I studied Malay from a book all day yesterday, making some 25 pages of notes on grammar and vocab, but I remember more from your CD from just an hour!” – James Bryce
