English Training DS is an English language educational training simulator released for the Nintendo DS exclusively in Japan and Europe. This software application is based on educational software released by Plato originally intended for the personal computer, but it was re-imagined by Nintendo for their line of portable hardware. The software provides routine tasks and exercises where the player has to translate phrases and terms of their local language into English by manually writing the answers on the touch screen. There are also a few other non-conventional programs or training games that are used to teach the users English. Players are graded and rewarded for good performances.

Barbara from the Band Brothers series makes a special appearance as a host.
