4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Tool To Improve French 10 Mar 2008
By wicket2005 VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this for myself to use on my son's DS Lite to brush up my school learnt French some twenty odd years ago. It tests you at first to see what lesson to start you on.

You read about how to write French and translate English into French before inserting words into sentences, find words in word searches, hit moles on the head that have the right word wrote on them and answer multi choice questions. The words are said in French which helps you to hear how you should pronounce it.

Each time you do a lesson or a game you are awarded points, when you attain enough points, ie show you understand the words/lesson the next lesson opens up.

This is a fun way to brush up on French or to use an ancilliary aid for the kids learning French at school. I would definitely buy it if my sons were in secondary school or even in primary to give them a head start.

I definitely recommend it for those wanting to learn a language, brush up on a language or for kids to help them at school. The main thing it is fun but you are learning at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars addicted 29 Jan 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased this game for my 11 yr old son, in order to help him prepare for secondary school. At first he was very sceptical as it wasn't what he would class as a game, however he is thoroughly enjoying himself, and now tries to speak french at home. I am also addicted to it and I was very surprised at how much French I could actually remember from school. By working through the lessons you master and remember the words.
I would recommend it to anyone with an 11yr old child who has had no exposure to foreign languages before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good 19 Jan 2008
By MacFan
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This isn't a game but a proper French learning tool- very easy to pick up and I'd highly recommend it. There's a lot of variety to the games so you don't get bored and the repetition of words until you learn them means you really do remember. I would say you've got to actually want to learn the language but it's very much like the Brain Training games- it only takes a few minutes each day.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tant pis! 11 Feb 2008
By A. B. Mcmullon VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
A real missed opportunity here!

The basic concept is OK. Repetition helps in language learning and a little fun helps you learn without getting too bored. Unfortunately these games won't keep you interested for too long.

When it comes to content this game has the same FATAL error as My French Coach 2 - it tries to teach vocabulary without giving you gender and so only does half the job and makes it impossible to even simple gramatical construction without recourse to an ordinary paper dictionary. It should have been very easy to include un/une in the dictionary and in all the vocab lessons (or even to do it subliminally with colour) - but it seems that no one associated with this project has pointed this out!

The best thing about this Level 1 version is that it DOES (unlike Level 2, the Vocab trainer) include good pronunciation files. Neverthless the omission of Gender suggests that you should spend your money elsewhere (especially if this games is one of your main reasons for buying a DS as it was in my case!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Good revision tool 13 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought My French Coach Level 1 as I'd learnt basic French for about a year, over 20 years ago, and was keen to refresh my knowledge and learn more.

The game starts off with a test to assess which lesson to start you with based on your previous knowledge. You can go back and refresh on the lessons previous to your starting point if you wish.

You use the stylus as you work through the lessons and games and the more points you earn from mastering the lessons the more lessons and games you unlock. I would disagree with other reviewers who though this game was not useful for learning! You can easily build up from having no knowledge and get through basic conversational French with a good understanding. As a guide the first few lessons are numbers, colours, days of the week, months, pronouns, questions and add on in a fairly logical sequence.

The games vary between multiple choice, flash cards (which is another type of multiple choice), word search, bridge building (where you put the words in the correct order to make a sentence), spelling, hit-a-word (a child orientated game of bopping gophers on the head as they appear out of a hole to select words) amongst others.

I think this game offers a good overall introduction to any age wanting to learn a new language or refresh the basics before progressing. I already have My French Coach level 2 ready for when I complete this, and definitely will try other languages too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really helped 30 Jan 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this for boys aged 11 & 13, and self. It helped all of us and 1 boy that had been struggling said he had learnt more doing 20 minutes every day at home on the "game" than he had in a year struggling with a teacher at school. Really useful for early French learners at School but not really for those that want to get the language quickely for travel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tres bien 30 July 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My French Coach Level 1: Learn To Speak French (Nintendo DS)
An excellent learning tool, which becomes addictive! I love the pronunciation help, sadly this is missing in Level 2. I agree with another reviewer, who commented on the lack of gender. Otherwise, I would have given 5 stars for both categories. It is still a worthwhile purchase for anyone wanting to learn or brush up on the French language.
