My Chinese Coach Nintendo DS

monarene "monarene", Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought My Chinese Coach in 2009. It is still revelant. Still cool. If you are just starting out in Chinese, and are on a budget, then there are more choices now than four years ago. However, this little program is a keeper for life.

Good Tool for Serious Self-Taugh Student

Cari Lee Druckenbrod, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • Summary: This is a great product if you are serious about learning Mandarin Chinese. I have learned a lot and feel myself retaining more information this way. The multi-system way the game teaches is great- pinyin and simple characters are used. It is difficult to keep track of, I find sometimes I feel like I'm learning two languages at once, because pinyin and Chinese characters don't have a lot in common.

it's ok

Yamina I. Palma-marlow, Amazon
18 March 2010
  • Summary: i got this for my son who's only 7, but wants to learn chinese. i wouldn't recommend it for kids, since it's not so visually stimulating, but so far, it's taught us some words. the key is to keep practicing. i wish they'd make something similar that would be more geared for kids.

Very good casual Chinese learning tool, but needs improvement

BBP, Amazon
24 February 2010
  • Summary: No book or software can ever replace formal instruction from a qualified teacher or interactions with native speakers, but not everyone has the time, money, or access to that. Chinese is a notoriously difficult language to learn, and if you are looking for an informal place to start, this software can be quite a useful tool.

Good Primer - Better with Pin Yin Pronuciation & Kanji Guide

Value Shopper, Amazon
18 February 2010
  • Summary: I bought this gamesoft to act as a supplement to my JAPANESE studies. "My Chinese Coach" is similar to "My Japanese Coach" in its approach EXCEPT that there are no syllabraries to guide one in pronunciation -because of this, I highly recommend a Pin Yin pronuciation Guide and a Kanji dictionary such as that published by Tuttle. If your serious about learning Japanese or Chinese and are looking to the Ubi Soft gamesofts, pick up the corresponding reference materials.

Good guide for inexperienced Chinese speakers

J. Lee, Amazon
13 March 2009
  • Summary: This "game" is a fairly productive guide to refreshing your Chinese language skills. As a relatively light speaker of the language I found the record and playback with the "teacher" functionality fairly useful. Pronunciation was more of a focus for me since I am at the stage where I would like to increase my vocabulary while pronouncing certain characters correctly.

Fun, educational game!

Yuni "nut_stud", Amazon
9 February 2009
  • Summary: I took Mandarin Chinese in school and this is a great tool to jog my memory of the language since I don't use it on a regular basis. Those who get this game to learn conversational Chinese might be a tad disappointed because even though the game teaches phrases and sentences, it is weak in letting you practice hearing spoken Chinese, which is one of the challenges for the beginner. However, it teaches crucial things like recognizing tonality and writing.

Ambitious effort for DS. Rewards what you put into it

ASC "newanders", Amazon
27 January 2009
  • Summary: I also own Ubisoft's French and Word Coach programs and My Chinese Coach is definitely more elaborate than either of those. In my opinion, they've done a really admirable job in trying to tackle a character-based language. This program offers some great language-learning tools, which will reward you to the degree you work with them. My problem isn't in unlocking new levels as some other reviewers have said.
