Not surprising, I just got that game where it teaches you how to speak english for my mom. DS is a wonderful little device that can teach you things. If you do not have one, you suck. :)

Wouldnt a tablet be better for writing and learning? Sure it's portable but you can only write so much in that little amount of surface area. Not to mention people are lazy and would sneak games onto their DSs.

DS is really good. Has some freaking fantastic games. I love nintendo for it, but i wish for the wii to die. IMO the wii is the worst console of all time.

QFT. DS is good, Wii is garbage.

Makes sense. There are tons of Katakana, Hiragana, and Kanji DS games that teachers could implement into their curriculum, along with other educational games.
