In this paper, we present an interactive interpretation game for learning Chinese. We extend our previous work on a flight domain translation game by introducing a new topic that is more appropriate for language learners. We discuss new features that have been added to the existing translation game system. We also report results from a pilot study to evaluate if the game helps learners improve their ability to speak the target language.
