From: Wireless Developer Network - Sep 25, 2003

WATERTOWN, Mass.--Sept. 24, 2003-- Partnership With Transparent Language Produces "Mobile-Lingo" Language-Learning Programs for Spanish, French, German, Italian, and English for Spanish Speakers That Can Be Downloaded to Many Popular Cell Phones

Mobile-Mind, developers of interactive wireless educational, lifestyle and entertainment applications, today announced the availability of five new mobile language applications for use with BREW and J2ME - based wireless handsets. Users can download Spanish, French, German, Italian, or English for Spanish-speakers to their handsets to practice words and commonly used survival phrases any time, any place. Mobile-Mind's Mobile-Lingo language learning applications do not use additional airtime once downloaded, since the data is stored on the handset for fast and easy access. Mobile-Mind developed its Mobile-Lingo applications with content provided by Transparent Language, a leader in language learning technologies.

"Mobile language applications put Spanish, French, Italian, and German language learning within reach of every wireless subscriber," said Mary Cronin, president, Mobile-Mind. "Wireless networks and handset technology have matured to the point where entertaining and useful lifestyle applications such as these can be accessed and integrated into the daily lives of subscribers."

Mobile-Lingo language applications bring the ability to practice Spanish and other languages to the wireless handset, making learning easy, convenient and fun. Each language application features hundreds of popular vocabulary words, along with survival phrases, flashcards and quizzes to check progress.

The Mobile-Lingo applications join Mobile-Mind's suite of mobile learning and lifestyle products, which include XAP apps for SAT(R) test preparation, RateYourself for Career, Personality, and Relationships, and American Sign Language (ASL) Fingerspelling.

"Mobile-Mind's work with Transparent Language represents a step forward in the effort to make easy and effective language-learning more convenient," said Charles McGonagle, vice president, marketing, Transparent Language. "With these new Mobile-Mind applications wireless subscribers who want to enhance their language skills can take learning from the desktop and learn language wherever they go."
