vocab expansion game! :)

hi! so i had an idea and wanted to give it a go, not sure how well this will work through duo's forum algorithms but we'll see!

how this works is i will start a comment by saying a word in english for example "the monkey"

the next person replies to it with the french translation PLUS another english word for the next person to translate

"le singe

the musical instrument"

let's see how long we can keep the threads going! anyone can reply to the latest reply, and if you don't know a word you can look it up! that way people reading the threads and people participating can both expand their vocabulary through this fun game C:

enjoy!

-Question: Does the game go like this? (with the words adding and adding, keeping the previous words in the thread?)

"the monkey"

"le singe, the musical instrument"

"le singe, l'instrument de musique, the book"

"le singe, l'instrument de musique, le livre, the door" (etc.)?

-Or does it go how its been going already? (with the words being the newest, plus a new one, not keeping the previous words?)

"the monkey"

"le singe, the musical instrument"

"l'instrument de musique, the book"

"le livre, the door" (etc.)?

I think it is the latter, being:

~ "the newest word, plus a new one, not keeping the previous words."
