iMendi Now Offers Russian and Arabic Vocabulary Practice

iMendi, a nice little site for practicing vocabulary in the languages you're trying to learn, recently added support for Russian and Arabic words. This brings the total number of languages you can practice on iMendi to nine. You can now practice vocabulary in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, German, Russian, Arabic, and Czech.


To use iMendi just select the language you speak and select the language you want to learn. iMendi then gives you the choice of choosing a lesson (level 1, level 2, etc) or trying a randomly chosen lesson. The "lessons" are really just simple vocabulary matching exercises with a score and the correct answers revealed at the end.

Applications for Education
Because it doesn't provide any direct instruction, iMendi's best purpose is as place where students can practice vocabulary words and terms. iMendi's "about" page mentions some future features that could make the site a little more useful in classrooms.
