I thought that would catch your attention.
These days, it seems like more and more people are getting bitten by the vocabulary bug and it’s all for a good cause! In a Web site built by the United Nations, there is a vocabulary challenge waiting for you. In this game, there is no game over and you can keep playing until your fingers tire. And for each word you get right, 20 grains of rice is donated to help end world hunger.
Sounds too easy?
It actually is! You don’t have to sign up for anything. You don’t even have to leave a name or your email address. All you have to do is log on to their Web site and play. As of the moment, 252, 053, 160 grains of rice have already been donated.
You might wonder who sponsors these grains to the less fortunate. Just to let you in on the whole process, there are advertisements below the page. They are the ones who help make a difference in the fight against world hunger. Some of them include mac and hp.
Playing at Free Rice not only benefits the world but also yourself. I’ve played the game many times now and I admit that my vocabulary has increased significantly. The game itself adjusts to your level so don’t be bothered if you can’t get the first few words right. That means the program is still in the process of determining which level you are at.
There are 50 levels in all although it is said that players rarely reach level 48 and above. I myself have only succeeded at level 42. But this shouldn’t discourage us. In fact, we should take this as a challenge and play until we get to the highest level. After all, it’s all for a good cause!
