5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressed with this game, December 2, 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: My Spanish Coach - Nintendo DS (Video Game)
I expected this game to mimic your typical book where it is all about repetition. Instead I found a very interactive and quite engrossing game based upon teaching you spanish. One fear I had was that as someone who knows a little about spanish I would have to sit through beginner stuff for hours before getting to the content that really suits me. The game handles this potential issue brilliantly by having you take a 50 question placement test. I got up to question 35 before missing twice in a row which automatically ends the test. For this performance I was moved straight to lesson 8. Amazingly there are around 1000 lessons. I played lesson 8 and immediately learned what I missed on the test and more importantly learned new words and the context in which they they are used in sentences. At the end of each lesson you take a timed multiple choice test where you accumulate Mastering points which enable you to unlock future areas. It really does give you a sense of accomplishment and also makes this really seem like a game.

For anyone looking to either learn a new language, or test their current knowledge, this series of games is awesome.
