We also offer technical seminars, technical training and support to help you to build your own chatbots, virtual humans, and web bots on your own computer.
Your own virtual human can:
1. enable your students to practice a new language
----take tests that you create
----keep score for you
2. They also automatically log everything your students say, so that you can develop relevant tests and content while monitoring your students progress.
3. Your students can speak with your virtual human from any computer, mac, pc, mobile device, handheld computers, cell phones, telephones, and even animatronics and robots. (from webpages, instant messengers, voice recognition applications and more)

Our Virtual Human Teacher Assistant for the endangered Mohawk Language, won the May 2002 Bronze Medal in the world-wide ChatterBox Challenge, for the Most Knowledgeable Bot.
We have been developing virtual humans, chatbots, and bots since 1996. They do everything a computer can do - run any application - with a friendly, consistant, knowledgeable personality.

I don't see any value in this at all.
The website doesn't have much content and the applications advertised don't have any application in teaching English, especially not for German students. It appears to be a MLM scheme. It would also be a massive waste of time and effort just to learn the program.

the website, at least find out what you are talking about first. to address one of all of your innacurate comments:
1. Their are no mlm schemes offered on that website at all. Never has been, never will be.

the services provided from that website have been assisting language teachers for many years now.
this is the spot where we let other teachers know about software and web applications and technical consulting services that are available to assist them, right?

This is the forum to mention software, etc. which might be helpful to teachers.
I see you've removed the URL link to your website so I'm not able to go back and point out the things I read which seemed mlm scheme related. However, the only languages I saw represented were Native American/Canadian languages and I didn't see how that might be useful to a BB comprised of English teachers in Germany. Most of the pages I viewed had no content. I did try the little lady thing in the upper left corner and that didn't work; the text kept coming back as I typed it.
If the application was developed to include something useful to people teaching English to German students or, to German students learning English, then I'd reevaluate.

the url, is because this appears to be a place where you discredit web applications that provide innovative tools and resources for teachers and language learners.
it appears you do not want to discuss other company's web applications and sofware tools for teachers and students.
No Sense in me putting the url here for you to create negative and inaccurate statements up about an honest company that creates innovative software and web applications for teachers and students.
oh, and another thing, many people may find it very offensive when you call First Nations and other endangered languages 'canadian' languages. Maybe you can find some time to learn a bit of linguistics history

then you would perhaps have got feedback from others who post here who may, in fact, have disagreed with me. As it is, no one is able to look for themselves any longer. Pity.
My reference to the languages of the North American tribes were as follows: "Native American/Canadian", meaning:
Native American (or)
Native Canadian
Since I am an American and since I lived a significant part of my life side-by-side and intermingling with members of the Oglala Nation I know that the preferred term is Native American but as I was unsure of how the native tribes of Canada wished to be called, I thought the most respectful would be to refer to them as Native Canadians.
If the intent in your posts is to be combative and engage in a sort of linguistic oneupsmanship then that would tend to defeat the purpose of marketing your software applications successfully, even to others here who might be more discerning than I am.
Good luck to you.

for attempting to be huffy and haughty. Under the circumstances, I should have my 'admin' badge revoked.
