FreeRice.com is back and even better!

Almost two years ago, I blogged about this wonderful site where you can test your English vocabulary. I stopped playing it after a while, and I think the site even disappeared for a time, but it's back and even better. The English vocabulary section is pretty much the same as it was before, just with the words distributed among more levels. And now there are other subjects, including art, chemistry, geography, English grammar, and foreign language vocabulary.

The English grammar quiz is pretty easy and there are only five levels; I got bored with it fairly quickly. The foreign language vocabulary quizzes have ten levels. For Spanish, in which I consider myself fluent, I hit level 10 quickly, as I'd expected. For German, which I took all through high school and have sort of kept up over the years, I could make it to level 10 but mostly centered around 9. I had much more fun with Italian and French, though, neither of which I've studied formally. With Italian, I found that my knowledge of Latin, Spanish, and music got me to level 8 fairly consistently. French is a bit farther from Latin, but combined with my Spanish and all the food-related terms I've picked up over the years, I managed to achieve level 7.

I don't think the database is that large for these languages, so I'll probably play them until I learn all the words. It's more fun than flashcards.

I love FreeRice.com! Not only do I get to pass time and utilize my stock knowledge, but I also get to help end world hunger. It's one of the two things that I let my son do in the computer without too much control because he gains a lot from it. The other thing is WordSmart. Complaints? Nah. If my son benefits from the program, why believe in such denigrations?

Sometimes,Life can be very displeasing especially when we loose the ones we love and cherish so much. in this kind of situation where one loses his/her soul mate there are several dangers engage in it. one may no longer be able to do the things he was doing before then success will be very scarce and happiness will be rare. that person was created to be with you for without him things may fall apart. That was my experience late last year. but thank god today i am happy with him again. all thanks goes to Dr. EDIONWE, i was nearly loosing hope until i saw an article on how Dr. EDIONWE could cast a love spell to make lovers come back.

HOW TO GET YOUR EX BACK WITH YOU NOW!!!
I have something to share with you!!! There is a great joy in my heart which I want to share with everyone. My name is Gunn Jenssen Faith . I had a misunderstanding with my lover several months ago; which led us to break up and he never wanted to hear my voice again. But as time went on, a good friend of mine recommended DR.PEPOKO who could help me with Love Spell to get my man back. At first, I thought the idea of a love spell was strange,but was willing to give it a try because i really love my boyfriend. For the first time I was scared to contact the DR.PEPOKO because I was not sure if what they did was against my religion. But my friend assured me that they only use Spell which is safe and has no side effects. I felt a little better and decided to contact DR.PEPOKO on his mail (pepokolovespell@gmail.com)I contacted him through his email and explained everything to him. He said that I shouldn't worry, that my lover will come back to me on his knees begging for forgiveness. I bought an item that he told me to buy for the preparation of the spell and assured me that my lover will come to me within 48 hours in remorse. My greatest joy now is that he actually came back to me and fell on his knees begging for forgiveness. We got back together and our relationship has been better this second time around. I have to give DR.PEPOKO all the credit for helping us get back to a better place than where we began. The new found love that my boyfriend has for me is incredible and i can't wait to see what the future holds for us. Do you have any problem with your loved one? Well worry no more because DR.PEPOKO can provide you with a spell to get him or her back. With the help of a spell just as he helped me. Contact DR.PEPOKO via email: pepokolovespell@gmail.com or visit her website: www.pepokolovespelltemple.blogspot.com

Here is my details also if you wish to contact me personal::: gunnjenssen.faith@gmail.com

My name is VICTORIA KENT from England, My husband and I have been married for about 6yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested DR OGUDUGU can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me 48hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since DR OGUDUGU is the best online spell caster that is powerful and genuine. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you.

Here’s his contact: greatogudugu@gmail.com or for easy communication contact him on whatsApp him +2348139793075
