For his German pronunciation of words and phrases, Rosetta Stone(r) is required; A German translator is also required. As John likes playing online games like Runescape, A fast and simple Internet connection is needed, so that John's games can easily and smoothly run. As he likes emailing, Microsoft Outlook and Windows Live Messenger are needed.
