English Software for Oyaji's in Trouble

Software maker Media Kite recently launched a new software program aimed at middle-aged men traveling abroad. "Otoko no Tsukaeru Eikaiwa" (English Conversation for Men) is part of the company's "Oyaji Series", using the often demeaning term for middle-aged men. It focuses on "Self-protection English," phrases that can help get people out of difficult or dangerous situations while traveling. It includes 55 lessons and such useful phrases as "Stick 'em up!" and "I feel sick." The software is available for Windows only and retails from today for ¥1,980.
