Fast Fitness - Build Brains and Help People

Here is Fast Friday Fitness - instead of eating junk food and playing violent video games, try a fun game to build your English vocabulary and help impoverished areas.

  1. A word appears with possible definitions.
  2. Click your choice for correct answer.
  3. For each correct definition, FreeRice donates 20 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program.

If your definiftion is correct, the next word is harder. If incorrect, you get an easier word. In this way, FreeRice adjusts to your vocabulary level.

According to their site, FreeRice runs the site at no profit. The rice is paid for by the advertisers, and distributed by the United Nations World Food Program (WFP). They give this warning: This game may make you smarter. It may improve your speaking, writing, thinking, grades, job performance...

Put down your junk food. Feed your brain and the hungry.
