This game could be fun for some, but could also be frustrating

Summary: I have a Wii that I primarily use for exercise games, including all the dance games. However, I also have a small collection of other games that I have purchased to supplement my collection and for my niece and nephew to play (with or without me) when they are at my house. That was my purpose in purchasing "My Word Coach." I wanted a semi-educational game that would provide entertainment AND learning. "My Word Coach" somewhat fits my expectations.
Great for Wii Addicted Children!! My 5yr old likes the Word Cereal & Missing Letter Spray Paint..

Summary: I homeschool my independent Little Princess who seems to Magically learn at her own pace. The Word Cereal is so cute!! The Spray Paint is easy if you remenber to use the proper uppercase writing stroke pattern that you learned in Grade School so it will be read correctly. I dislike the timer but the game is great for learning to spell and reinforces prefixes and suffixes.
Summary: I find that the controls are kind of strange. You have to like lean the remote side to side to navigate, which is not very intuitive for me. It is taking me a we'll to get used to that, which decreases my ability to play some games. The first few games are ok, but more games that are more fun become available as you play more.
Summary: If you like word games, this one is a good choice. There is quite a variety of games within the main game. You can choose level of difficulty. This game is not geared for kids although it would make a great educational game if a child is so inclined. There are options for solo games as well as playing with others.
Summary: Enjoyable activities include word recognition, spelling challenges, and vocabulary definition, including 16,800 words. It's a fun and challenging way to improve verbal skills through a series of activities. I've already improved my vocabulary & am eager to unlock the rest of the games. This appeals to me (age 43) but I doubt children would like it. People who are interested in improving vocabulary & "expression potential" will find these training games intriguing.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game, but I won't be spending much time with it. Maybe if I had a Nintendo ds to control it with it would be OK, but with the Wii it is impossible to play some of the games, such as Pasta Letters, up to speed. I might try it with my 9-year-old, because words at her level might be short enough to be doable. I also have a niggling thought that some of the iPod apps might be just as good for vocabulary development, and be more accessible.
