Aprende Espanol con el Hijo de Asterix

A title well suited for those with some knowledge of Spanish is Aprende Espanol con el Hijo de Asterix (EuroTalk). You will probably need to read the booklet first since everything on screen is in Spanish. Once you understand the options, the program is quite amusing. Based on the popular European comic strip, Asterix, the disc presents a full-length cartoon adventure of the warrior from Gaul. You can access the story in several ways: read it without sound, have it read to you, or use the interactive mode with its various options. The strengths here are vocabulary and colloquial speech. Like VideoLinguist, if you have the basics you can gain a lot but, if you’re a beginner, forget it. This title is suitable for older kids (ages 14 and up), as well as for adults who still enjoy comics. There is a French version as well.

– April 1995
