Awkward!!!!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
11 January 2015
  • Summary: I would rate it this game much higher if it were not for how you have to input answers. I often get marked incorrect for not being quick enough, Are you kidding me? In one game, you have to spray paint the answers in. Wii remotes are not responsive enough for this nonsense. The other input modes are annoying, but work a little better than the spray paint. However my shoulder hurts from the awkward movements.

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

Former Baker, Amazon

  • 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.

Educational

  • Summary: I keeping hearing that this is better on DSi but I don't have one, so I can only talk about the Wii version of this game. Overall, the game is okay. I wouldn't describe it as fun however. Educational, yes. Fun, not so much. There are several game options and a Word Coach to encourage you. I think the disc I have is slightly disfunctional though because my coach will tell me I did well, when I completly screwed up.

Good but Lacking...

Magganini "Its all about the music", Amazon
16 January 2009
  • Summary: Enjoying the novelty and variety of games. Some games like the spell the words using cereal bits try your patience because spelling the words using the small letters is tedious. Drawback: this game never provides pronunciation. Seems like this would be elemental when learning new vocab.

Fun for word-nerds...does not make the best use of the Wii interface.

ZenWoman, Amazon

  • Summary: If you love vocabulary based games and go to sites like freerice often, you will find this game fun. It offers you a choice of instructors and games. You have a required quota for the day and your instructor will let you know how you're doing. In one game you have to choose between 2 words based on the meaning, which is what we play the most. In another you fill in the blanks of a word by spray painting the letter on the screen.

GOOD WAY to review the words you alread know. BAD WAY to learn new terms.

Cestmoi, Amazon
31 January 2008
  • Summary: For people whose English is their second language, this game presents a GOOD WAY to review the words they already know. However, it's a BAD WAY to learn new terms. It's because of the reasons listed below 1. The words are explained but there are no examples that show how to use them. As a result, you can create non-natural English sentences even though you know their meanings. For example, "influx" is explained as "the arrival of large group of people or things".

An Innovative, but Flawed Game

Kara, Amazon
28 January 2008
  • Summary: My husband and I are in our early twenties and are both previous english majors who are enamored with words. We did not have fun with this game. 1. In terms of ease of gameplay, the controls are awful. They appear to have wanted to take advantage of the novelty of the wii-mote with no thought as to how the difficulty of maneuvering would impact gameplay. 2. The overall tone of the walk-through and the grading was a bit patronizing. 3.
