Great to play.
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: Pre-owned
Well worth the $6 I paid for it. : )
I bought this for myself, because I seem to have a hard time finding the right word sometimes. : ) I first thought after playing was, how is this going to help? The games are timed, and you need to go fast. I didn't get how that was going to put words I didn't know in my head. Now a couple weeks later, I am picking up words through the repetition. I like a few of the games more than others and play those repeatedly. I have three children so I am not on it everyday as the game is set to challenge you to do. I also do not always complete my daily goal that it has set for me. That doesn't seem to affect my game playing, or the enjoyment. I like it, and as long as I am not too tired, I enjoy playing it a bit everyday.
I will use what I will learn with this game in real life conversations
This "game" is fantastic I have started learning the meaning of words I thought I knew but really didn't I just started to play and I am pretty sure I am in for a good lesson of words I will totally use in real life
Fun Vocabulary Refresher
I might be too literary for the broad spectrum this game was designed to entertain - I don't find it very challenging. Its not to say that it isn't fun, it has cute games. But I find it a little limiting, I get thru my "daily quota" to fast to spend much time with this game, its designed to not add more words at a set point. However the characters for coaching are neat. I find this to be a game I unwind with. If you want a fun verbal challenge pick up a "My (any language) Coach" instead. But if you are just looking to dust off your skills with our american english have at it (no grammer lessons involved).
Fun & Educational - a great game on the go!
What I liked about MY WORD COACH: ~~Very easy to start it up and start playing...didn't need to read an instruction booklet to understand the games or controls ~~Great variety of words, from easy to medium to difficult (about 17,000 words) ~~Definitions of the words are included (after the game you are playing is finished) so it's not just 'some word' you get familiar with seeing, you can learn what the word is and how to use it in a sentence ~~Improves your spelling ~~Improves your language comprehension ~~Improves your vocabulary ~~Improves your thinking and reaction speed ~~6 different word games (all fun) with 3 levels of difficulty, as well as the ability to do a multi-player option with other players on other DS systems, wirelessly ~~You can have up to 3 player profiles saved on one game, or log-on as a guest ~~You can choose the on-screen character (coach), which is a little bonus, but appreciated by me, as sometimes the host character on some games can be really annoying. ~~One of those games that you can play for about 15 minutes a day, and that's enough for your daily training...you don't have to play it for hours and hours at a time to make progress (and if you're a student or an adult...who has that kind of time to spend with a video game?) ~~Great for a wide range of ages! From higher grade elementary (say, age 10 and up) through high school, through college/university and beyond. Even if you're already quite articulate ____________________________________________________________________________ What I didn't like about MY WORD COACH: ~~It would be nice if there was an option to hear the word spoken aloud ~~Sometimes the writing-recognition has difficulty with your printing and doesn't know what letter you're trying to write. It takes a little practice to learn the best way to write particular letters (so that the game understands you right away) but for the most part I didn't find this to be a huge problem ~~I wish it were more difficult ~~It spells in "American" English (ex.color, not colour) even if you tell it that you live in Canada or the UK ~~If you're left-handed, some of the games may be difficult for you to pay as they require you to write on the right-hand side screen I hope that you found this review to be useful and informative.
