My Japanese Coach


My Japanese Coach Nintendo DS

For those of you learning Japanese, and own a Nintendo DS, good news. Ubisoft, maker of the Spanish and French versions of My Word Coach have chosen Japanese as their next installment.

My Japanese Coach will be released on September 16, 2008.  Kotaku caught the title being given a rating by the ESRB. This usually happens just before the game is about to be formally announced.

This will help the overall plan of the Japanese government to spark interest in learning Japanese after it has begun to see competition from Chinese and other Asian languages. In the next 3 years, the Japanese government hopes to see 100 new Japanese learning schools (currently only at 10).
