Addictive and Helpful Web Site

Increase your vocabulary and help feed the hungry.

I got hooked right away.

Enjoy!

Wow! That's cool. I stopped at 320 grains of rice. I'll go back for more later.

My interpreter instructor put onto the site. It's a great way to learn new words. I got up to vocab level 43 but haven't made it past that yet.

addictive is right!!

ya know, as a child, my parents used to get the Readers' Digest and my favorite part of that magazine, well, maybe after some of the funny stories, was called something like, Increase Your Vocabulary. It was very similar to this, one page had 20 words with 4 multiple choice answers, and you would turn the page to get the correct answer. I credit my current level of vocabulary to some extent to that magazine.

Also, in Girl Scouts, we had to learn all the native birds of Eastern North America. I am amazed how much of that knowledge has stuck with me.
