Interactor: How do you ask an Iraqi where the warlord is so you can meet with him to chat?
Iraqibot: Very politely.

Tactical Iraqi,” W. Lewis Johnson’s language instruction program, offers soldiers the opportunity to learn Iraqi through interaction with characters through a video game-like interface. Johnson is current director of the Center for Advanced Research in Technology for Education (CARTE) at the Information Sciences Institute of the University of Southern California.

According to Johnson, the response from Iraq War veterans has been outstanding to the effect of “I wish I had used that program BEFORE I went over there.” Their site reports, “Learners at Grafenwoehr who had previously been deployed to Iraq stated that they learned more Arabic in one day working with Tactical Iraqi than they learned in their entire tours of duty in Iraq.”

The system, as a teaching tool, is impressive. Dr. Johnson was polite (and generous) enough to share it with me on a recent visit to his lab in Marina Del Rey. The voice recognition was strong and the interaction compelling. (Nonetheless, I don???t think it will count as my military service.)A: Very carefully.
