Eikaiwa on Your iPod

Sourcenext yesterday announced a pair of new software products for learning English conversation on an Apple iPod and other MP3 players. "MP3 Eikaiwa Bijinesu-hen" and "MP3 Eikaiwa Puraibeito-hen" can be used on a computer or audio player. Localized from products created by American company English Vitamin, they are aimed at Japanese who want to simulate or prepare for life in the US. The "business" version includes a "Business Trip to Silicon Valley" among its total of over 126 hours of lessons. The "private" version focuses more on daily life and includes the "Road to American Social Skills." It has over 156 hours of lesson content. Both versions include texts in PDF format, with Japanese translations. Some iPod models can also allow the text material to be viewed on screen. The products will go on sale August 26 and retail for ¥1980.
