My Word Coach is a video game from Ubisoft for the Nintendo DS, Wii and iOS. It involves English vocabulary, and is intended to develop the ability to express oneself clearly and with confidence, using a system called Expression Potential, or EP. It uses words and definitions from the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary. The data of three players may be saved on to one copy, and one can compete on the Nintendo DS and Wii platforms using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
There are six single-player training exercises, as well as four games for recreation, one for wireless services. The single-player training exercises are: Missing Letter, Split Decision, Word Shuffle, Pasta Letters, Block Letters, and Safecracker. These four recreation games are: Competition, Cube Panic, Speed Letters, and Multi-Card Play. In addition, there are three difficulties: Easy, Medium, and Hard. All games initially only have their Easy difficulty available, with harder difficulties unlocked over time.
The game received "mixed or average" reception from review aggregator Metacritic. Critics praised the game for its educational value, but critiqued its lack of content and variety, requiring long play sessions in order to progress, and inconsistent handwriting recognition.
