Play the Great Language Game: It’s Fun and Free

great language game

Are you ready to play The Great Lan­guage Game? This online game “chal­lenges you to dis­tin­guish between some eighty or so lan­guages [see a list here] based on their sound alone. In each game you’re allowed three mis­takes, which are kept for you to study at the end. If you’re feel­ing com­pet­i­tive, share your score with some friends and com­pete for some seri­ous brag­ging rights.” You can even see how oth­er play­ers are far­ing inter­na­tion­al­ly.

If you rock the game, let us know in the com­ments below.

If you come out of the game feel­ing like you could brush up on your  lan­guages (which you pret­ty well might), then head over to our col­lec­tion of Free Lan­guage Lessons. It offers free lessons in 46 lan­guages, every­thing from Ara­bic to Yid­dish. Have fun.
