Free Rice

I don't know if any of you have heard of this game before, but it is really cool. It's called Free Rice. There are a bunch of different subjects you can choose to play from (like multiplication, English vocabulary, English grammar, learning Spanish, learning French, learning German, learning Italian, world capitals, world country locations, famous paintings, and chemical symbols) I didn't know that there were different subjects until tonight when I was playing it. I guess I should tell you why it's so cool.

For every question you get right, they donate 20 grains of rice through the UN World Food Program to help end world hunger. It has a little wooden bowl on the side of the screen that shows how much rice you donated.

Tonight Iwas really bored, and I tried all the subjects except learning German and Italian and the full version of chemical symbols. I ended up donating 10,000 grains of rice.

Also, I realized that if I was to have a test on one of the subjects on there at school, this would be the best way to study EVER. I did the Spanish one because I am taking Spanish 2 right now, and I did the French one to see how much I actually would know.

So if you get bored sometime, you can try this game :) I know world hunger is never going to end, doesn't it say that in the Bible? But the Bible also says to feed the hungry, so go forth and learn :)

Very cool Tori! I've played the learn English before but not the other things. I'll have to try some more of those and see how smart I am - I'll probably be very disappointed but at least anything I get right, it'll be for 20 grains!
