Summary: My Spanish Coach is better polished game. This is more like a app not a game. It is not fun like My Words and My Spanish Coach it looks like its another game and they just slapped a name of My Chinese Coach. sorry I like Chinese but this is not the same quality of game as the others in this series.
Summary: This game is a great tool for learning Chinese. The only problem that I have found is that there is no search method on the game for using the dictionary in an effective manner, you have to systematically search the entire database to find what you are looking for instead of being able to type a...
Summary: This is a good tool to engage in learning in the spoken Mandarin Chinese as it uses the DS voice recognition program in a way other hand held game systems cannot. I had fun playing the games and trying to figure out how to read/write the Simplified Chinese.
Summary: If you’re on the road to being able to speak with most inhabitants of the world, odds are that you’ll want to learn the Chinese language, specifically the Mandarin dialect, the most heavily spoken language on Earth.
Summary: I bought both Nintendo DS and Chinese Tutor based on positive reviews here. PRO: With a few exceptions, I'm happy with it. It uses lessons, locked lessons, games, touch screen, microphone very well to create interactive and fun lesons. A bit Anglicized (e.g. shi4 = "yes", guo4qu4 = "past").
My Chinese Coach - a useful tool for learning Mandarin.
16 February 2011
Excerpt: I bought this game for the whole family to use as we are all 'attempting' to learn Mandarin. It is designed for absolute beginners so might be a bit tedious for people who are trying to improve their knowledge of the language rather than learn it from scratch.
Pros: great for learning vocabulary, pronounciation and word recogntion
Cons: no use for learning to write chnese characters
Summary: I am currently on my 2nd year of studying Mandarin and decided to use this game as extra support and for practice on the move. And in theory, this game is a great idea, but sadly it is held back by certain issues: - Mistakes, such as missing words and tones.
