One of my friends on another message board told me about this really neat site. It's a way to test your vocab, and with each word you get correct, a small amount of rice will be donated to the hungry.

www.freerice.com

Have fun!

Wow Joanna that was great. I learned a lot of new words and just donated over 12,000 grains of rice. I wish they would give you an idea how much that really is though.

Me too, Elaine!!! Very Happy Laughing To be honest I didn't know some of the alternatives to choose from. In fact sometimes I knew the word that was asked for but not all of the ones of which I had to choose. Laughing I loved it though and I couldn't stop. I had to force myself to stop...

I notice it switches things around after a while and it will give you back the words you missed, What I found fun is that just from prefixes a lot of time I was able to guess the meaning of words I thought I didn't know

I noticed that too, Mary Ann. It was fun to try to figure out the words I didn't know right away. It's a good way to increase your vocabulary though!

Neat site! LOL, it's hard to stop once you started, and so I was at least able to donate 1660 grains. Smile
