Build your Vocabulary while Feeding the Starving

by Louellen Coker on July 29, 2008

For all your wordy types out there with time to spare…. Or anyone who wants to improve their vocabulary.

You can help feed the starving as you test your vocabulary on the FreeRice website.

Here’s how it works. You are given a word and four choices for a synonym. Each time you select the correct word, 20 grains of rice are donated to those who need it. That’s truly all there is to it.

The site will rate you and keep a running total of how much rice you help donate. In addition to supplying food to the hungry, the site aims to help facilitate learning the English language.

So, no matter how you look at it, you’ll be feeding someone and teaching him or her a skill.

Enjoy!
