Learn Eight Languages in One Place

There are a lot of places on the web where you can find flashcards, games, and quizzes designed to help you learn a new language, I featured eleven good places here. Over the weekend I found another good site to add to  that list. Learn a Language offers flashcards and games for learning eight different languages. Learn a Language offers activities in Spanish, Italian, German, Russian, French, Japanese, Chinese, and English. 

The format for Learn a Language is the same for all eight languages. Users select a language then choose if they want to study individual words or phrases. Whichever they choose the format that follows is the same. Users can study flashcards then play a game called Lingo Dingo. Lingo Dingo requires players to accurately type a word or phrase before it disappears. The object of the game is to construct a dingo by earning points for correctly typed words and phrases. 

Applications for Education
Learn a Language could be a good place for students to practice spelling words and phrases in the language that they are studying.
