Square Enix's Present "Summer Story" A Game to Teach English Dialogue

a IPhone/iOS app game/Visual Novel that is Aim for japanese to learn to speak English(or other way around). The real Title of the game was "Real Taiwa de Manabu Jissen Ei-Kaiwa"(Learn Practical English Conversation Through Realistic Dialogue) but it too long so they decide it Summer Story. In the game, the player interacts entirely in English with three female college students who are studying abroad in Japan. The three students are... 

Allison Lloyd a quiet 21-year-old gardening fan from a London suburb

Charlotte Ryan lively 20-year-old aspiring tour conductor from Sydney

Elisabeth "Lisa" Ferguson a 19-year-old anime fan from Florida

 Karen M. Turner 26-year-old college English teacher from Yokohama.

The gaming System are like usually Visual Novel to pick one character till the end of her story, however they two choices, to just listen their English word or listen and speak back in English in order to process the story.
