You’ve landed at your destination and it’s time to go through passport control and customs. Everyone knows that queasy feeling: please do everything right, hope they understand me, please no complications… With your phrasebook it’ll be over in a flash, and you’re on to the next challenge. Does the taxi driver understand me? Has it all gone smoothly with the hotel booking? No need to worry if you download the right iSayHello courses to your iPhone or iPod Touch f r o m the App Store. Offline and in your own time, even on the flight, you’ll be able to play back phrases for your holiday destination, and learn a few key words to be able to confidently handle common speaking situations.
The iSayHello language courses are specifically aimed at users with little or no foreign language skills. Many phrases and sentences are recorded by professional native speakers, and can be played back as many times as you require. What’s more, iSayHello for the iPhone will always be nearby, so that even in difficult situations, the phrasebook will be where you need it most – in your hands. “With the Favorites feature, you can put together personalized and quickly available selections of important sentences,” says Peter Heinz, Managing Director at language software development specialists Admovi.
With the tutorials Arriving, Welcome, Hotel, Shopping, Eating Out and Emergency, you’ll have a comprehensive basic vocabulary for spontaneous communication, and can travel with ease and confidence. We’ve even included a tutorial called Flirt. iSayHello is already available in English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Polish and Chinese. Reading and speaking in the Chinese course is supported with clearly displayed phonetic characters, aiding learning immensely.
“The ‘Best’ award f r o m iPhone Apps Plus for a number of our phrasebooks, such as for our Spanish and Italian language courses, is confirmation of the high quality of our voice software for the iPhone and iPod Touch. We provide communication solutions that can be used anytime and anywhere in this globalized world,” says Peter Heinz. iSayHello language courses are also in development for other smartphones. If you don’t have an iPhone or iPod Touch, you can go to http://www.travel-dictionary.com and download the language course for your mp3 player, or simply complete the tutorials directly on the Internet.
