View Full Version : Increase your Vocabulary & donate rice - FREE

I heard about this on TV this morning in the hotel. Then, I checked out the site and was immediately addicted.

This is a very fun site that lets you test and improve your vocabulary AND, for every definition you choose correctly, the site donates 20 grains of rice to feed the hungry. The donations are made through the United Nations.

Here's the link....

Enjoy. The highest level I got in my 20 minutes was 42. The site says that the levels go to 50 but that it is unusual for anyone to score above 48. I'm sure that there are some in our community that will make it more usual.

Hope you are all well. I'm still on vacation but will be back in beautiful BC and back to AW on a regular basis after the 1st of March.

Ah yes, that.

Good idea, giving an addictive quiz that is connected to the donations.

Hey, we are writers. We need to work on our vocabulary and this is a great way to do so.

My only method of working on my vocabulary at the moment is scrabulous on Facebook. :)

Oh thanks. Like I need another addiction.

Over 1300 grains, I got as high as level 46, but I was mostly a 42er.
