World Talk

Want to build up on your language skills?  

If the language you’re learning is good enough to follow basic conversations, but you still need to practice, WorldTalk is for you.  This program targets the intermediate level language learner.

Features include:

A TV-style quiz show: you can play against a resident champion – depicted in entertaining video sequences – or in a one-to-one match with a hilarious on-screen opponent (see screenshot above).

Play interactive language games and earn points for every game you play. High scorers can go on to win bronze, silver and gold awards, which you can print out as a record of achievement.

Speak and write in your chosen language. Record yourself and compare your pronunciation with a native speaker, then test your written language skills with four dictation exercises.

You’ll soon start to think in the language you’re learning!  World Talk is an ‘immersive’ experience: in this program you will only hear your chosen language.  You’ll learn to associate the language with memorable images – not just the equivalent words in your own language.  This means you’ll start thinking in your chosen language, which will make you quicker at understanding and recalling words.

Come and visit your AV Language Library to start learning!

Play a game on television against Yiannis! Click on one of the three possible answers after you hear the question from the announcer. Yiannis isn’t such a good sport; he whoops it up when he wins, and scowls when he loses or you get the correct response. But, hey, it’s only a game!
