PlayV has announced that its range of educational titles will be released on Nintendo DS in February 2009.

The Mind Your Language series has been fully accredited by international language school Inlingua and teaches a variety of tongues, including Spanish, French, German and even Japanese.

PlayV’s marketing manager Brian Faller said: “We’re really proud to be launching Mind Your Language on Nintendo DS. As a language learning aid, its unique approach is a breath of fresh air compared to existing titles, which rely too much on the Brain Training or phrase book templates.

“Mind Your Language does something other methods can’t make – it makes learning language genuinely fun for anyone, no matter how young or old.”

Each title is divided into four levels of difficulty, teaching players the relevant language from the ground up, going beyond vocabulary and focusing on sentence structure and grammar for a more comprehensive experience.

Players collect several types of words such as nouns and verbs through a series of mini-games in order to gain an understanding of the language.

Intuitive exams and tests monitor their progress and allow gamers to reflect on what they have learned.

The Mind Your Language games arrive on Nintendo DS on February 13th 2009.
