I have been playing on FreeRice for quite some time now, but I just recently discovered that there is a feature for language learning! All you have to do is go to the "Change Subjects" button in the top right of the window, and choose your language. While learning German, French, Spanish, Italian, or Latin, you can donate rice for free. The program will say a word in your foreign language, and you will have to translate it into English. For every word you get right, you donate 10 grains of rice. Of course, the program can't stand on its own for language learning, but it's fun to do when you have some downtime. Try it at freerice.com.

Sounds cool! I love FreeRice!

(EDIT: Just tried it. This seems like a really useful tool for more advanced learners who have extensive vocabulary. It can also work for less advanced users when carefully considering the words. Anyway, thanks for sharing!)

I kinda just like guessing, and since it goes back to the words you get wrong, I eventually memorize it.

There is a Duolingo group on there. It looks like it is still active.

I've used freerice.com and even have it listed in my profile, but I haven't visited in quite a while. Thanks for the reminder.

I've played freerice before it's cool that they donate as you learn.
