Crowdsourcing photos to reinforce learning

I think it would be great if, when answering a question, there could be an image associated with it to provide a visual aspect of learning. This is present for some questions, but an expansion would greatly improve the site. The process to implement this might include a link in each question that generates a web search for images of important nouns/verbs in the sentence. After opening in another tab, users could click and drag useful images back into the Duo tab. This could give users a chance to see the words in context of the learning language (similar to the "in context" option at wordreference.com dictionaries). Just a thought to add another level of depth to the experience.

Agreed. It's much better to get used to thinking in the language, rather than just translating back and forth, and this would be a great way of getting users doing just that.
