Build your Vocabulary at

Here's a nifty site that allows you to build up your vocabulary and donate rice to the world's needy at the same time:

For each word you get right, ten grains of rice are donated to the United Nations World Food Program. That may not seem like a lot - until you see how much has been donated so far. Would you believe 537,163,380 grains of rice as of this posting?

The vocabulary quiz is really fun, too - hard SAT-level words that really challenge your level of knowledge. Check it out, insha'Allah - but I have to warn you that it is hard to leave the site if you love words.
