Improving your vocabulary

As most of you know, I love puzzles. Any type of puzzles. I chanced upon this web page when I was blog hopping. It is not a puzzle but it tests your word knowledge. So, being the person that I am, I started having my fun.

I learnt new words as well as confirmed my understanding of words not frequently encountered. The best part is that for each word that I answer correctly, 20 grains of rice is donated through the United Nations to help end world hunger.

According to the United Nations, about 25,000 people die each day from hunger or hunger-related causes, most of them children. So do your part, and learn and have fun whilst helping to end world hunger. And you would be pleased to know I contributed a total of 500 grains to the poor today!
