Freerice.com - Help Reducing World Hunger while You Improve Your English

FreeRice.com

For each answer you get right, we donate 20 grains of rice through the UN World Food Program to help end hunger.

Beautiful message, isn't it? This is what Free Rice offers: a Web page where you can practice your English (by learning new vocabulary and improving your grammar) while you do a good thing helping many people who don't have anything to eat.

There are different topics to choose from and increase your ability with English and other subjects:
  • Art: questions about famous paintings.
  • Chemistry: various lists with chemical symbols.
  • English: practice your grammar and vocabulary.
  • Geography: identify countries on the map and World capitals.
  • Language Learning: French, German, Italian and Spanish.
  • Maths: practice multiplication tables.
Every question is in English so whatever subject you choose you'll be practising your English. Moreover, in the "Language Learning" subject, you might be able to choose your native language (French, German, Italian or Spanish) and then be asked to translate a word from your mother tongue to English, thus improving your translation skills.

To be honest, the games are pretty addictive and this particular blog has already donated 1180 grains of rice. It's not much, but it's better than nothing! :) How many have you donated?

Take advantage of this website and practice your English online, and remember that for every correct answer, 20 grains of rice, which will help to reduce the hunger of many, will be donated.

Visit freerice.com

You can see a video (in English) where it's shown how they help and feed many people using the rice obtained in FreeRice.com.

FreeRice.com was discovered thanks to a comment of Satya Rao, author of the blog Best Tech News.

That's a beautiful message and post..
Learning any new language is very important to all.Those who had the grit to start, completing has to come as a natural course of events. Decide that you are going to be bilingual soon, or if you are already bilingual, decide to be trilingual or more, and carry on.And Learning Spanish has become very easy by online tutorials, conversational Spanish program,etc..
