Computer Game teachs Iraqi-Style Arabic
About 100 U.S. soldiers and Marines serving in Iraq will soon have a new tool intended to help keep them safe, and perhaps make their jobs easier -- a computer game designed to teach them how to speak Iraqi-style Arabic. NPR’s Ina Jaffe reports on the game’s appeal to a new generation of troops already familiar with interactive video games.
