Learn English with pillow talk: there's an app for that..

Teaching-English-in-Japan-Education-Girlfriend-App" Internet ad agency and services company CyberAgent has released a follow up to their English conversation study application for iPhone, “Moshi Kareshi Ga Gaikokujin Dattara Eikaiwa” (English Conversation If You Had a Foreign Boyfriend) entitled, unsurprisingly “Moshi Kanojo Ga Gaikokujin Dattara Eikaiwa” (English Conversation If You Had a Foreign Girlfriend).

The app is supposed to allow the user to strengthen their English ability while enjoying a romantic drama. Players select one of three foreign characters, each of which has its own storyline. According to CyberAgent, users can talk on the phone with their selected partner once a day, drill their listening skills by following a conversation, and can learn 300 English idioms by practicing and repeating phrases from the conversation with three types of quizzes.

The app retails for ¥250.
