Vocabulary words added to each card in the familiar seven-stack solitaire game allows the player to learn something while playing. The usual destination of four ace stacks is spread out such that as cards become available, the player may place them on the appropriate matching word in the other language.
If it clicks into place, it is correct, otherwise it flies back to where it was. Thus player learns
by trial and error the matching word.
See link for the computer program I wrote to do this, with some sample French and English words. (I'm practicing programming skills with these rudimentary programs).
