The game is fun, but I agree with the other reviewer that it would be more useful for learning if it provided english translations for all words found.

Not really for learning

It has a great dictionary, but if you're just starting out in a language, don't be deceived by it's "play and learn" description! It was not designed to teach you anything but definitions to words you already knew. A hint feature in the form of English definitions or similar forms of the word in the native language would make this a 4 star app.
