Activity Suggestions

I think it would be really cool to have some optional games and activities to practice what we learn on Duolingo. This might just be the kid in me, but I love matching puzzles, crosswords, and other word games, and I think having some of these available would be great for strengthening vocabulary! What do you all think?

I had one idea for a game where a word pops up, and the player has to tell what part of speech it is, a noun, verb, adjective, etc. There could also be a Boggle-type game: some letters are given, and the player has to come up with as many words as possible before time runs out.

Maybe playing Boggle with another user, in a language they're both learning. Could be fun and engaging!

Here's a fun game on Sporkle: "Can you name the top 50 most used Spanish words?" Perhaps similar games with themes like "20 adjectives that start with A" or "Things found in a car" and so on would be helpful in Duolingo.

I think it would be fun if we could solve riddles or mysteries in whatever language we r learning. I enjoy sloving riddles; it would be a fun way to learn vocab and make our brains work:) Another idea could be some sort of card or board game, like matching vocab words w/ pictures or fill in the sentence w/ the right word(s). Keep thinking everyone:-)

That is a nice idea and it is also helpful that you give concrete examples of games. If people come up with more game ideas, feel free to describe them here.
