Feeding the world while boosting your vocabulary
Do yourselves a favor and visit: freerice.com.
You can test your vocabulary, and donate rice to the hungry at the same time! For every word you get right, the sponsors donate 10 grains of rice. And as if it couldn’t get any better than that, you see the rice pile up in a bowl next to the vocab quiz!
The words start off somewhat easy. The more words you get right, the more difficult they become. In other words, the game stays at a level it thinks you can attain, while still managing to challenge you. It is, in a word, genius.
So far, through this game, I’ve learned that I have been provendering the hungry with aliments!
And thanks to us vocab boosters (ok, fine: the sponsors) people all around the world can enjoy recipes like these:
Herb Rice Delight
Lemongrass Fried Rice
I really don’t think it gets much better than that!
