Korean Crossword Puzzle

This website provides a crossword puzzle games that use Ronmanized Korean words. The benefits of this method is that you don’t have to deal with the Korean font issue when you don’t have Korean Windows installed. Also, it is much easier to design the game, and easy to play for the Korean learner, too. You can play the game without knowing the meaning. Though it is a minor issue, the drawback is that you have to know the words in Korean or otherwise it is very difficult the spelling of the Korean word.

In the current form, the learning potential is somewhat limited. Adding an audio clip of the Korean pronunciation or asking participants to find both the Korean and English words in the puzzle could easily fix this.
