Free Rice

Filed under: Announcement,Free Rice,Important,Vocab — sciencefun @ 12:46 pm

We interrupt the random pointlessness of this blog to bring you something that’s actually important.

Freerice.com is a unique site where you help world hunger while improving your vocabulary.

The site is basically a word matching game. For every word you get right, they donate ten grains of rice. The money for the rice comes from the advertisers at the bottom of the screen. So by playing the game you raise the money to buy the rice,
as well as improve your vocabulary skills at the same time.

The computer automatically adjusts the difficulty based on your skill. For rvery three words you get correct the game increases the difficulty. This program is appropriate for any age or skill level; from English Professors to those just learning English.

Give it a try, or better yet, have your class give it a try. Help feed the hungry, and make yourself more smarter at the same time!
