TalkMan (v2) features a 'game mode' with two mini games. As expected these try to improve the player's listening and speaking skills. In the listening game Max, a blue bird and the tool's mascot, speaks one phrase in all languages (minus the player's native language) and the player has to guess its meaning by choosing one of four given answers. In the second game Max reads out a phrase in a language along with the translation into the player's native language. The the player has to repeat it and the the game gives a score based on his accentuation. Both games feature 25 difficulty levels.
TalkMan (M6) is designed for travelers and entertainment, mostly containing slang and useful travel phrases. While originally sold in and designed for the Japanese market for Japanese users, its translation function operates between all four languages. In Japan, the software has proven popular with the middle-aged female demographic due to an interest in South Korean products, and Korean-language soap operas and movies; and as a fun English education aid for children.
