Test Your Spanish and Feed the Hungry at the Same Time!

Need to brush up on your Spanish vocabulary? FreeRice.com is the perfect website! Not only can you test your current knowledge, check your pronunciation and learn new words, but for each question you answer correctly, FreeRice donates ten grains of rice to hungry people.
This non-profit site is run by the United Nations World Food Programme, with two goals in mind:
• Provide education to everyone for free
• Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free
Since its beginnings in 2007, FreeRice has donated over 81,411,552,880 grains of rice, thanks to its sponsors who advertise on the site. This rice has been used to feed over 4 million hungry people all over the globe.
With over a billion people chronically hungry worldwide, each correct answer on the site can make a real difference. How? Because every day, tens of thousands of people play FreeRice and collectively that means huge amounts of food for the people who need it most. And it’s not only good for Spanish practice either. You can also choose quizzes in Art, Chemistry, English, Geography, French, German, Italian and Maths.
There are so many good reasons to play FreeRice, I can barely begin to list them all. Perhaps you’ve got a test coming up, you’re feeling guilty for all those wasted hours surfing the net, you fancy doing a good deed (or maybe you’re just bored at work or school…) Either way, click the banner below, choose your subject and get playing!
