Learn Gooder English on Your DS

I know my English needs some improvement, and I’ll get it as soon as I buy “Eigo ga Nigate Na Otona No DS Toreeningu: Eigo Tsuke” (Steeped in English DS Training for Adults that are no Good at English), for the Nintendo DS. The game lets you practice English with up to eight people (up to four on one cartridge), and the exercises actually require you to write English words and phrases with the stylus after hearing a (presumably) native English speaker say them. The game has many levels of what they call “English Power,” that vary in difficulty, and the game’s Japanese website suggests that if you play the game everyday your “English Power” will go up. Don’t think for a second that the game doesn’t include an in-game calendar that lets you mark off every day that you’ve played.
