Word Laddering Game

Let’s play a game!

There is no winner for this game.

The point of the game is to take the last letter of the word above yours and make a new word in your target language. If your target language uses a script, please also include the romanization of that word!

Please state what language you are learning and what the word means in your native language! That way we can all learn new things.

Example Gameplay:

Target language – Native Language Meaning – Word for Game
Person 1: Hindi – House (English) – Ghar
Person 2: English – Rojo (Spanish) – Red

And so on and so forth!
