Cycles through an odd number of foreign languages, stating the time on the hour or half hour, if you are so inclined.

       If people wish to learn a foreign language, i don't think a talking clock is the way to go. Really this is just as a novelty.   

       And if you won't give a croissant, i guess i'll just give myself one.   

       "Very well done, marvelous idea, top of the pile"

       Hopefully spoken by individuals with distinctive and intriguing voices.

       Hopefully spoken by the Monty Python team (see link).

       I'm all for it if it includes Esperanto. Just don't make an alarm clock; I'd probably stand all of two mornings of it yelling "Veku! Veku!" at me before I showed it the meaning of "pecetigi".
