Watch out, word fans

So, one of Word Nerd's Indiana VISTA colleagues found this site and it is way too cool not to share.

Test your vocabulary and help donate grains of rice through the UN to countries that need it.

So far, Word Nerd's donated more than 3,000.

Also, if you go under "options," you can set the computer to remember you vocabulary level so you always get challenged with tougher words. So far, Word Nerd's top level (of 50) was 47, but seems to hover most of the time in the lower 40s. She keeps playing, donating rice, and hoping to hit higher levels of words because it's fun!
