doesn't live up to name

Adriel, Amazon
16 November 2009
  • Summary: The games are fun - I do enjoy playing. But I bought this with the hope of increasing my vocabulary. Unfortunately, I know most of the words already. And my 11 year old also knows most of them, so I can't even say it will help my kids.

You can learn foreign words and mistakes...

Ken B, Amazon
20 May 2008
  • Summary: I think this game is enjoyable in the early stages, but as your expression potential goes up you run into problems. In some case, very obscure meanings of words are used for definitions, ignoring more common uses.

Could be so much better

Book Mom "Interested in Learning", Amazon
27 March 2008
  • Summary: It has potential, but falls way short. It needs pronunciations with the words - much like My Spanish Coach. It should also include part of speech in the definition, and at some point, should give you an example of the word being used.

Not for people who are serious about actually learning the words

Adam "Adam", Amazon
18 January 2008
  • Summary: I don't know if I've ever seen any game come down in price this much this quickly. Maybe it's because no one wants to keep it for very long! At first, I thought this game was great. After playing it almost every day for about 5 weeks, I have a very different view.

Effective but repetitive

Stephen J. Carlson, Amazon
17 January 2008
  • Summary: My Word Coach for the Nintendo DS is an educational video game designed to teach new vocabulary words. I really wanted to like this game, but ultimately, it fell short of what I had hoped it would be.

  • Conclusion: To start with this game seemed fun, but once you train everyday and unlock the few levels there are it becomes repetitive and boring

Warning to UK users : American vocabulary!

NumberSix "numbersix", Amazon
30 April 2008
  • Summary: For me this game is ruined by the use of the American spellings of words. For example: 'jewelry' rather than 'jewellery' 'program' rather than 'programme' 'traveling' rather than 'travelling' ...and so on. Also the game includes several stereotypically American words such as 'condo'.
