Hey, you’re bored huh?
I don’t usually promote websites….but this time I’ll make an exception.
FreeRice is a sister site of the world poverty site, Poverty.com.
FreeRice has two goals:
Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
This is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors who advertise on this site.
Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your vocabulary can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself.
Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide. Thank you.
You can try going to that one. For each question you get right, you donate 20 grains of rice through the UN World Food Pogram to help end hunger. If you find the words difficult (gaucherie- wtf is that??), hey, everything is at the tips of your fingers.
Go to an online dictionary for God’s sake.
Weird concept right? But the sponsors pay for your donated rice so don’t worry. You’ll also get to improve your vocabs. Learning while donating, not bad aite?
I’ve only donated 240 grains of rice.
Stopping here tonight. 8 am class tomorrow. That’s freaking early for me.
Happy donating everyone! =D And yes, spread the website around.
P.S: Credits to Zatyfaty for sacrificing her sleeping time (tido jak keja) to tell me =)
