One of my students just sent me a link to a really cool website: Freerice.com. You test your vocabularly with progressively harder words and the more correct answers you get, the more the sites advertisers contribute to a UN food program. There are 50 levels of vocabulary words. I made it up to level 44, where I was done in by words I had never come close to seeing. Its quite addictive– give it a try (and let me know if you beat level 44).
UPDATE: So, one of my students actually sent me the screenshot of his 45 today, so I was compelled to get back at it (yes, I am that pathetic). New high: 46.
