One of the most important steps in learing a foreign language is to be able to pick words of that language out of conversation, and also out of print. To be able to find them in these crossword puzzles I could see helping to build the written part of that skill. The interface of this game is quite good, and there are so many languages to choose from!

This is a really good web site that can help learners enlarge their foreign language vocabulary, which can be achieved through playing the Word Seek games on this site. In addition, users do not need any special technological skills or any special software to play these games. One disadvantage about this web site is that I feel that it is too big a challenge to play these games. When I picked some languages and themes on this site to play the Word Seek games, it simply took me too much time to find the word that I want to locate.
