FreeRice Turns Words into Food
It’s a remarkably simple concept: The website freerice.com challenges you to test (and improve) your English vocabulary, and for every word you get right, ten grains of rice will be donated to a hungry person somewhere in the world. How does it work?
FreeRice automatically adjusts to your level of vocabulary….When you get a word wrong, you go to an easier level. When you get three words in a row right, you go to a harder level. This one-to-three ratio is best for keeping you at the “outer fringe” of your vocabulary, where learning can take place.
