    Is this like the US version of My French Coach, which was aimed at native French-speakers (hence only the French, Canadian, Swiss and Belgian flags appearing) or is it a different game altogether?

    Its not the same as that, it is basicly brain training but for your english languiage and vocabulary. I believe it has some word related mini games.

    Been looking forward to this one

    Where's the US version, though? It's been out for a few weeks now, I think.

    What are the differences between the US and European versions of the game? I know there is no US dump yet (weird), but I'm curious as to how friendly the Euro version is to Italian/French speakers.

    So this is based on British English I guess? I'm waiting for an US release.

    Good. It's going to be good to have a vocabulary that is more... good.

    Well, people... don't be so harsh. IMO, it's a really good 'game', at least for my particular case: I'm studying English Philology. If I can 'improve' my vocabulary for free... ehmm... I mean, without having to pay for classes... and playing a 'game', good enough to try it [​IMG]

    Not every game need to be a Zelda, Contra, or Final Fantasy. This is a good game, just not for everyone. It can even work as a concise dictionary, there's such a mode in the game.

    Yes, I think this game is good for people who want to improve english usage and learn alittle more. This game is not good for people who would really rather be playing a game game. Hence It will not appeal to many a person.

    Does it have WIFI!!!?

    This version can be set up for UK English, US English and also Canadian (I assume some subtle differences there).

    What does confuse me though is the date format is in US (ie MM/DD/YYYY) - it asks you before you put in your country - and then doesn't change the format either.

    So I'd say this was more US than UK as I have to look at what I consider an incorrect DOB on my profile screen.
