Free Rice

My friend gave me this site today.

It hooked me up for 30minutes, before I had to quit as I had to go jogging.

You get a word correct, they donate 10grains of rice.
Improve your vocab, help end world hunger!

Skeptic or not, it’s really addictive. Try it. I think I reached level 35 at the very initial stages, then came crashing down haha. It’s fun not really knowing most words and guessing it from the syllables / eliminating other choices.

FreeRice automatically adjusts to your level of vocabulary. It starts by giving you words at different levels of difficulty and then, based on how you do, assigns you an approximate starting level. You then determine a more exact level for yourself as you play. When you get a word wrong, you go to an easier level. When you get three words in a row right, you go to a harder level. This one-to-three ratio is best for keeping you at the “outer fringe” of your vocabulary, where learning can take place.

There are 50 levels in all, but it is rare for people to get above level 48.

Must get past 35 to 40 first!!Check out the FAQs.
