    From pocketgamer:
    "Mind Your Language will make learning fun and takes the chore out of studying. Targeted for the ages of 8-15 Mind Your Language is the first language game made for younger audiences as well as other generations.

    Players will pass through 4 different levels each of which will become more difficult as their language skills improve. A variety of mini-games and a library where players can look up words and search for popular phrases in each language are an added plus.

    The series will consist of 5 different languages: English, Spanish, French, German and Japanese. Mind Your Language "Learn English" and "Learn Spanish" will be the first 2 titles available just in time for the summer holidays. The other Languages will follow this autumn."

    Not sure how much these will help people, we do already have Spanish & French titles but a lot of people here seem to want a Japanese one too.

    Yes, a Japanese version is much wanted over here.

    I hope this is as good as the "My (Language) Coach" series... Those were very good.

    I tried the "My French Coach" one.. and got tired of it.. fast

    IMO, the game is good if you already now some of the language and want just to practice it.. but not really good to learn something. It focus too much on vocabulary and too little on grammatic. And the games are all too boring and repetitive [​IMG]

    The japanese game will probably sell a lot though.. working or not!

    One can study and improve by one's self, but it's impossible to learn a language with just books and software.

    Finally! A Japanese trainer would be awesome. I don't know many people (gamers, at least) who don't want to learn Japanese. I know I'd love to have something handy and easy to use that could really help me learn just some basics.

    Hope we see it come to fruition.
