Summary: As a human I think it is important to be able to communicate with our fellow human beings. Setting aside our race, cultural, religious or geographic differences we all need to communicate and get along on this big ball in space. I took Spanish in high school but I'm pushing 50 now.
Summary: I recently moved to a Spanish speaking country and MUST learn Spanish. This game is contributing greatly to my learning of the vocabulary. The game alone is certainly not enough to learn to speak Spanish. It is a fun way to learn a lot of new words with some reinforcement of basic grammar rules.
Summary: Having bought and played the Japanese version of this game, and being addicted to learning languages, I decided to buy `My Spanish Coach' to also brush up on my Spanish skills. This follows pretty much the same format, but with the Spanish language.
Summary: At first I thought this game might be too cutesy for me, and it didn't grab me while I was initially viewing the vocabulary - let me give you some advice, despite the placement test, start at the very beginning, otherwise you might miss words the game thinks you know.
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: The only negative I've noticed so far is that I can't really hear the "Spanish coach" without earphones unless in a very quiet environment. This is a minor gripe however and I find the game enjoyable and sufficiently challenging for a beginner.
Summary: It escapes me how anyone is supposed to learn an actual language with this program (as advertisements seem to imply) since it has almost no grammar. The lessons provide only very scanty basics- no subjunctive, past or future or any decent treatment of gender.
An excellent tool, but with some fairly big problems.

Summary: Working with mostly Spanish speakers, I decided it'd be best if I re-learned the language. I took it for 2 years when I was in school and didn't do too hot (averaging a C on every report card) despite my dad being Mexican and trying to teach me when I was younger.
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...
Awesome! for first ~40 lessons, terribly flawed after that

Summary: I would gladly buy a second or third one of these if the excellence of the program persisted past lesson 40 / present tense. I can't imagine why they couldn't have added another 20 or 40 lessons that were ORGANIZED and covered past tense or future tense verb forms.
