I have to admit English wasn't my favorite subject in high school, but if i had the chance to use my Nintendo in class--well I bet my grades would have been much better!

Well that's the case for some junior high school students in Japan!

The Nintendo DS is now being used as a key teaching tool in their English class!

The students use plastic pens to spell words on the DS's touch screen.

The best part about it? -- an electronic voice that tells the students if they spelled the word correctly.

The DS is being used on a trial basis, but so far so good.

And parents said Nintendo was nothing but trouble.

Also, on the Dot-Com Desk...
