Summary: Very good drill program that includes pronunciation and speed. Good: Great drill in a nice form factor used while waiting in a line or for your tires to get rotated. Variety of drill programs. Bad: Full sentence game has too few sentences.
Summary: I've always been interested in learning languages and when this game came out I rushed to buy it. I've played it for a few hours and so far have increased my spanish vocabulary, but have not learned how to conjugate verbs.
Summary: It has been a good many years since I took Spanish in High School, so I thought it might be a good idea to see if I could brush up on a little of the language since it is becoming more common here in the United States.
Summary: I think the DS makes a great educational tool for students. I'm glad to see that more companies are starting to create games for the DS that help kids learn! I purchased My Spanish Coach a week a ago for my son who has been taking Spanish for a few years in school.
Summary: I strongly disagree with the first reviewer. I bought this game with low expectations, thinking this could hardly be "fun", but at best I was hoping for a somewhat less-than-boring way to learn Spanish. I was delightfully surprised to find this program was quite engaging and enjoyable!
Summary: I had taken some Spanish in high school and college, but it's been a few years since I had used it so I wanted something to help me relearn it. I've played through the first 55 lessons, and while it has been fun up to this point, the game has too many flaws: First, it teaches some basic grammar, but...
Summary: I just purchased this last night and played for a while this afternoon. I had previously purchased CD Spanish sets, but this seems to be a more relaxed way to learn. I`would reccomend this to any person with reading knowledge.
Summary: I can absolutely see where many reviewers are coming from when they say this title is more entertainment for kids than a learning tool, but I would counter that the entertainment is where `My Spanish Coach' derives its learning.
Summary: I took some Spanish in middle school and high school, so I knew just a little bit when I got the game - I wasn't totally in the dark, but close. I think the minigames are great fun! I actually wish there were a few more of them, for variety.
Summary: Not that Spanish isn't a fun language. But my son is 11 and taking a foreign language in middle school wasn't exactly his idea of fun. BUT NOW IT IS!!! I can't believe that he actually ENJOYS learning Spanish by playing the games and practicing on his DS with "My Spanish Coach.
