Allright Penny,here's my report: it's almost midnight. I did 700
grains for you. Tomorrow I'll take some rice, count each grain up to 700 ( ) and will describe you how that looks. 3 missers, level 27, whatever that means.It was fun.

If you click on "more" at the bottom of the Freerice screen, it takes you to the FAQ, which explains interesting things, such as sponsorship and what the levels mean. I like these folks.

Cool link. I am proud to say that I have reached 49 at one point so far, but I tend to hover around 46-47.

"it's especially fun to do with friends, all standing around debating the words. on T-day, we got to level 49! "

I learned about it from a colleague the day before Thanksgiving and got to level 45 in about 15 minutes. I then passed the URL on to my spawn who each got a kick from it. Usually we play pictionary, but maybe this xmas we'll do that and intersperse it with some freerice. Good idea.

"There are 50 levels in all, but it is rare for people to get above level 48."

"FreeRice can now remember your vocabulary level and totals for each time you play. See Options."
