My Spanish Coach

Uno, dos, tres, quatro, cinqo, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, diez, once, doce, trece, catorce, quince.
(i hope that was correct)

How did i do? Did i spell them correctly? Less than half an hour ago if somebody said those words to me i would respond by praying that their condition is not contagious and i'd be out the door. BUT, less than half an hour ago or there abouts, i opened up the seal on "My Spanish Coach" for the DS and powered that sucker up. I always wanted to learn Spanish, but, there was never a book that would hold my interest long enough for me to get anything out of it.

Recently i found out that the newest contributor to this site,"Jimmy" sang the praises of "My French Coach" (which he will probably write about soon, i hope) so i crossed my fingers and gripped my teeth and avoided black cats and didn't walk under ladders and hoped that "My Spanish Coach" would be just as awesome to me as the French version is to Jimmy.

Now, because of the power of the Nintendo DS, i can count to BLOODY 15 in Spanish! I sware i wrote that list at the top by not looking at my DS.

The cart teaches you a certain amount of words and only when you master a certain amount of words can you unlock the next phase. If you don't master each section within a phase you have to retry. But, you know what? I love retrying. The games being used to teach you each word or number totally writes the book on kickassness when it comes to language learning games. Not like i played many, but you know what i mean.
There's even a dictionary in the cart, a list of phrases. Hell, now with my Nintendo DS there is no way i can go to Spain fearing to ask somebody where the nearest pisspot or bathroom is. Say you run into Sanchez, and you don't know how to actually pronounce a phrase properly, the chick in the game pronounces alot of important phrases and words and numbers. There's also a scribble pad you can draw funny Spanish doodles onto with your stylus, or scribble something onto. It's like a piece of paper. A vital tool when travelling.

Anybody out there wanting to learn Spanish and has had a difficult time learning through books, PURCHASE THIS CART! Schools wanting to teach Spanish, burn your old Spanish teaching tools and purchase a Nintendo DS with this cart for each one of your pupils! This game rocks more than Bree and Tabby trying to do a "dance-off" in Animal Crossing. This game has all the tools you need to confidently travel Spain.

Purchase this game NOW!
