Apps on how to speak Klingon

By Updated on

With so many language in the world you have to admire how some people are able to learn more than one, two or three – some of us often struggle with one. Now choosing what language you wish to learn is a bit of a tough one, and depends on your circumstances. My wife has decided to use Rosetta Stone to learn Spanish, but I was shocked that there are apps on how to speak Klingon.

There are some of you out there that would think that this is a joke, but we can assure you that it is not. The first app that we have found is called Star Trek: Conversational Klingon and even features the voice of Michael Dorn, who played the part of Worf. OK, now you know that I am a bit of a Star trek fan – although not sure I would feel the need to learn Klingon.

Not only will you get to learn certain phrases in Klingon, but also about its culture. You can learn basic conversations, pronunciations, basic expressions and so much more. The price for this app is just $3.99 on iTunes.

Star Trek: Klingon Phrasebook is the second app and will allow you to get by when you attend a Star trek convention, or if you find a partner who also shares in your love for Klingon – although there will not be many out there. This will be like have a universal translator in your pocket, as you can use the iOS app to learn the basics.

Those basics include different greetings, food, travel, as well as being able to use the language in an emergency – although not certain you will want to shout out something in Klingon in the street – you will get attention, but not the kind that you had hoped for. The price for this app is just $0.99 on iTunes.

Star Trek: Klingon Suite is the final app, but the $11.99 price could put a few people off – maybe not true Star trek fans though? If you like to believe that you are a true Klingon, or one that role plays one then this will be the app for you. This is the most-complete suite there is on the Klingon language and has a higher chance of teaching you how to speak it. In some cases we would say that this is the Rosetta Stone equivalent.
