Welcome to Scribo Crossmots

Crossmots, available in 27 combinations, are two-language crosswords designed to help students and individuals who are learning or need to learn a second language and are specifically designed to help improve vocabulary skills.  So, if the clue is in one language the solution is in the other.  We hope you have lots of fun.
