Vocabulary and Rice


Looking to improve your vocabulary, or know someone who needs to? Free Rice is a pretty nifty site being touted by a lot of school districts as a great way to catch up on SAT vocabulary. After visiting the site several times myself, I think it would be a pretty good brush up for someone taking the GRE or MAT. The deal is, for every vocabulary word you get correct, the sponsors (yes the ads are a negative) on the free rice site will donate 20 grains of rice to the United Nations project to end world hunger.

Ingenious idea really, or should I say dexterous, or shrewd, or effectual, or adroit...

Yup. I'm back. I may need a nudge every now and then to remind me to post though.

Love the idea of that Free Rice site. I think I just found my new time killer!
