Increase your Vocabulary... help end World Hunger

YAY! Fun and useful!!

This is fun! Play the vocabulary game and if you get the meaning of the word correct, they will donate grains of rice to Third World countries. I did it and it was like a game! I donated 2860 grains of rice today!

Here's what they have to say.....

"How does playing the vocabulary game at FreeRice help me?

Learning new vocabulary has tremendous benefits. It can help you:
  • Formulate your ideas better

  • Write better papers, emails and business letters

  • Speak more precisely and persuasively

  • Comprehend more of what you read

  • Read faster because you comprehend better

  • Get better grades in high school, college and graduate school

  • Score higher on tests like the SAT, GRE, LSAT and GMAT

  • Perform better at job interviews and conferences

  • Sell yourself, your services, and your products better

  • Be more effective and successful at your job

After you have done FreeRice for a couple of days, you may notice an odd phenomenon. Words that you have never consciously used before will begin to pop into your head while you are speaking or writing. You will feel yourself using and knowing more words.

FreeRice runs the site at no profit and the rice is distributed by the United Nations World Food Program (WFP).
