I'm a beginner in Pali and I find this game quite helpful.

Every time I need to reply, I'm going to online Pali-English Dictionary - http://dsal.uchicago.edu/dictionaries/pali/
And while looking for a good word to reply, I learn several new Pali words, their etymology, synonyms etc.

Other Pali beginners may find this useful too :)

upajjhāya - teacher, preceptor

(As far as I understand, upajjhāya for a novice monk focuses on teaching Vinaya, and ācāriya teaches Dhamma, - but I am not sure about this)

upajjhāyā (preceptress, [female])

The only difference with the previous is the accent mark over the last a.
