TalkMan is a revolutionary language entertainment tool that shows how versatile the PSP really is. TalkMan enables the user to familarise themselves with six different foreign languages: French, English, German, Spanish, Italian and Japanese. Whether you are travelling on business, studying abroad or simply just on holiday, TalkMan is the perfect aid to overcome the language barrier.
To use the TalkMan, there is a special microphone which comes bundled with the package. TalkMan is hosted by a friendly blue bird called Max, who is there to guide you along, to make the all important introduction to your foreign friends and provide you with essential language tutorials. Max will give players a pronunciation sample which they then need to mimic. Max will then evaluate the feedback and rate the player on how well they would sound to a native speaker. In addition, there's a 'Listening Game' in which the player needs to try and match the voice to the correct meaning.
TalkMan also comes with various tools that are important when travelling, such as a world clock, unit converter, voice memo, friend map and emergency alarm.
This is a really interesting game for the PSP. You can learn a number of essential words of a number of languages by playing. It comes bundled with a microphone and as you speak the foreign phrase it analyses your voice to tell you if you are correctly pronouncing the words.
If you have a PSP and want a fun way to pick up a few essential phrases, this is well worth buying.
