Unfortunately, I managed to get both [ profile] yamasagi and me addicted to My Japanese Coach last night.
Despite the rather bad IGN review, I like it a lot. Heck, the damn thing managed to finally implant the days of the week into my head which is something I've always had huge problems with. Wow!
The principle of mastering vocabulary seems to be quite effective for now, at least it does work for me. The games are fun and the lessons are not too huge.
I was quite flattered when the game, after the assessment test, put me right into lesson 11 *blushes*
However, I started from the beginning instead to see every bit of the program.
In other extras, I love how there's a tool that teaches you the strokes to write Hiragana, Katakana and, supposedly, at a later point, Kanji as well.
The whole game seems to be quite extensive, with 100 basic lessons and more. The sound quality is good for such a small-ish program and you can even train your own pronounciation!
I expect to come back to it again and again, if only for the Kana practice. The vocab so far is still a bit underchallenging for now, but I'm sure that'll change.
So, if you have a DS and want to learn something new, why not try this (or any other of the "Coarch") series?
Stole these from a German message board. Had a good laugh so I thought you might like them, too.

13 more after the cut. Enjoy ^_~
