The U.S. State Department has recently launched an online game and site for learning English.

The overall site, American English, seems primarily to offer links to the Voice Of America’s excellent Learning English resources.

The game, Trace Effects, seems somewhat interesting. However, you have to download Unity Gameplayer, and I’m not sure how many schools will allow that to happen. Unfortunately, you also have to register to play it, though it is a very quick process to do so.

Thanks to Education Week for the tip.
