TLDCAdmin Could Use Some Help!
 
I'm working on a mini-game to help people build Tagalog language vocabulary.
You need to be Upper-Beginner or Intermediate level to be able to play.
 
Do you think you could give it a try and let me know how it goes, what could be improved, and if you run into any bugs?

I am not (yet) an upper-beginner but I scored 15 out of 20 on my first attempt. It's a good game but I need to learn a lot more yet.

@TLDCAdmin I like the game! Good learning tool. Easy to use format.

I got 18/20. I guessed on 3, and missed 2 of those. I actually don't think this is a good way to learn vocabulary, but it is a fun way to review.

I think you have to mix it up every once in a while when you're learning...a little game is a nice way to do that, I think.

@TLDCAdmin I agree with you, and sorry if I came off as negative. It is useful. I just meant that I don't think this is a good way to learn new vocabulary. It's fine for reinforcing what I already know, but for example I'm unlikely to remember those 3 new words I guessed on.
 
Regarding input, this is a cloze deletion test; are you planning to make it feel more like a game at some point? I'm fine with it the way it is, but younger users might appreciate more bells and whistles.

I like the game. It's a fun way to check on vocabulary. I like having the English translation of the sentence, but I think it would also be nice to have an option to turn the English off. Then it can be fill in the blank using the context from the rest of the sentence.

Good fun and adds variety to learning vocabulary without a context. I actually found that I wasn't really studying the grammar which is a shame - I found I was looking for the missing word.
