Try the Great Language Game

Learn to recognize the world's many languages, one at a time.

It plays a 20 second clip of people speaking a language, and then you have to guess which language they were speaking from the choices offered.

I have scored as low as 50 and as high as 800.

Correction: I just scored a 0. :jaded:

400 and then they hit me with lots of oriental stuff. I can identify oriental, see, but what flavour of oriental stumps me (I think I could pick out Japanese, but that wasn't there).

2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

Don't we already have hand held universal verbal language translaters? Seems to me I saw one demo'd at least a year ago. Haven't seen it advertised as yet. Must be a bug or the cia can't figure out how to back door it?

Just 100, then 200 - but it stops after just a few languages, so I don`t see how to ever get to 400, much less to 800.... Ah, yes - just three strikes in this game... my final was 250.

400.....and the right answer was always my second choice. I would have scored near zero without it being multiple choice.

There is a cheat you can use:

playing on my phone, I get the option of downloading the soundfile instead of playing it directly. And the file has a name that makes it clear what language it is.
