    Question Interlex alternative for Linux

    Interlex is a free Windows application that helps you learn vocabulary in a foreign language quickly and easily. The program is built around a simple idea: first you compile a list of words and phrases, then you test yourself until you have learnt them.

    From: http://www.vocab.co.uk/index.htm
    Could you please suggest me any Interlex alternative for Ubuntu/Linux ?

    Thank you for your reply. Running Interlex through Wine is another option, however I prefer a native Linux application. It would be surprising for me if there is not any similiar application in Linux for language learners.

    Check out the links on this page:

    I actually found it via another language learning software for Windows I already knew about:

    (Freecorp Fury Language is also Libre Software)
