    Hi guys,
    This is a new game in the sandpit forum. You have to post a word in a language other than English.

    Hubpages authorities restricts writing hubs to English language only. However, large number of non english speaking people participate in hubpages. Most of them, including me, have English as their second or third language.

    Hubpages are great place for fun and learning. We can learn words from languages other than English by this way. It will be a fun too.

    Rule of posting in this thread:

    1. Write one word at a time.
    2. Write a word from any language other than English.
    3. Write name of the language at the right side of the word.
    4. You can also add English meaning and a brief description of the word (Optional)

    Now start and enjoy.
    Thanks,
    Jyoti Kothari

      I like the idea of a game; especially one that promotes learning and good will.  I hope I get this right.  Here goes:
