Learn Travel English Online

Portal site "goo," owned by NTT group company NTT Resonant, and major publisher ALC have teamed up to provide a new English e-learning system for Japanese traveling abroad. "TabiEigo BB" is a broadband service to allow users to study travel-related English using a fun multimedia approach. The content is based on ALC's CD and text materials, and includes animated "OL's" on a foreign trip, video featuring NHK teacher Ken Toyama and pronunciation practice using native speakers. The course, which is up to six months in length and costs ¥12,600 (discounted to ¥9,450 until Nov. 30), is designed around a weekly-updated schedule of five minutes study a day. English conversation is the most popular subject for online learning at home, and appeals particularly to housewives, students and the elderly.
