If you haven't seen FreeRice, it might be worth a look. It's a vocabulary quiz which adapts to the level of the player. Some of the words are definitely imported directly from other languages, and sometimes the answer is close, but not entirely accurate. The FAQ says "There are 50 levels in all, but it is rare for people to get above level 48." I've made it up to level 50, briefly, but my true level seems to be around 46-47.

It also claims to be donating rice through the UN, sponsored by unobtrusive advertising. There are undoubtedly better ways of performing charitable works, but it does make me feel marginally better about wasting my time.
