Summary: I bought this game with the intention of improving my Spanish. It did nothing but anger me. The games were pointless and did not help me to learn anything. Now, I'm fluent in English and am advanced in French and I know Latin. However, without my background and knowledge of Latin, French & English, I would have been lost. Even with all that, I was still lost and confused. The games were confusing. I did not have fun. In a nutshell, do not purchase this game.
Summary: I strongly suggest as an alternative My Spanish Coach, which is a great learning tool. Spanish For Everyone is pretty useless. Does not really teach in a manner that helps you retain words. Maybe young kids would like it, but as a almost intermediate Spanish student , I would NOT recommend at all.
Summary: The story line is kinda nuts, the graphics are GameBoy Advance quality, and the sound is monotonous. But the greatest disappointment is that you can't even learn Spanish from this game. It gives you one-to-one translations for the words, with no phrases or grammar points. And it doesn't even sort the words into "beginner" or "advanced.
Summary: All you have to do is research this game on Kotaku.com or Destructoid or watch videos of this on You tube and you'll see what I'm talking about. The game has a story that is writhe (sic) with stereotypical characters that border on blatant racism. Sure it's got that cute cartoon drawing look to it but it is not what it seems. The story starts with a kid playing his DS and his friend Miguel asks to play with it.
I need to learn Spanish and I travel every week for...

Summary: I travel at least twice a week by plane to different offices. I want to work in Texas, where my home is so I picked this game up hoping it would be a good way for me to practice my spanish while in hotel rooms and too lazy too boot up my laptop to use Rosetta Stone. But this program is not much more than a very simple puzzle game that has very little Spanish training. I was highly disappointed to have spent $30. I will trade it in on something else.
Summary: I thought this would be a great way to refresh my memory of Spanish vocab from back in high school. And it isn't. The game is very limited in scope and you don't actually have to learn any Spanish at all to beat most of the games and move on to the next levels. If you make an effort, you can surely learn a lot of vocab from this, but my natural inclination with things like the matching games was to match the icons and not the words, for instance.
