An enterprising programmer has developed an app for the iPhone to help English speakers with Taiwanese. The software, created by Gene Ko and called simply “Taiwanese“, includes a vocabulary training section and a self-test facility. It’s listed on my (British) iTunes at £3.99, but I don’t have exact prices in Taiwan or US dollars (£4 is just over NT$200 or about $6.60 American). Another thing I don’t have, unfortunately, is an iPhone, so I can’t offer a report on this application. If anyone out there has tried it, please feel free to leave a comment.
