To be American means that it's your inalienable right to visit a foreign country and get upset at the locals for not knowing English. If, for some reason, you wish to learn their strange tongue, bring along your iPod and load up iLingo. It's software (well, in as much as a bunch of sound files with a menu structure makes something software) designed to make learning that new language you've always wanted to learn but never had the time, um, fun. Yeah. There's two packs, a Euro 2.0 pack, which includes French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, and an Asia 2.0 pack, which includes Cantonese, Japanese, Korean and Mandarin Chinese. The audio files were all recorded by native speakers, so there's no worry of sounding like a dork when trying to pronounce words. Available now, iLingo, which only works with iPods with a dock connector, costs $49.95 for the Euro version and $39.95 for the Asia version. Now go forth and make Uncle Sam proud.
