How do you know your level? Oct 21, 2007

Hello Mihailo!

I just played the Free rice vocabulary game. I succeeded in giving more than 200 grains. But I did not get my level result...

Thanks for your reference. It's fun to play...

Bye for now!

Level result appears as "Vocab Level" rather faintly in the lower right-hand corner of the left-hand panel. You have to get the first four right to gain a score of 40 and it builds up slowly from there. I reached 49.

You can continue playing until you reach 10.000.
I stopped at 1300 grains and attained a level of 36. The more you play the more difficult it get.

Enough for a curry Oct 21, 2007

1000 grains, level 45. But many words I will never need or come across again.

That was fun ! Oct 21, 2007

I got up to 2680 grains, but could not maintain my highest level at 46 ... I finished at 38, although I think I averaged 41 or so ....

Not sure about the definitions Oct 21, 2007

in some cases, but it was fun, and if in fact some rice is donated, it's a great initiative.

Thanks for the link!
Nancy


EDIT: I guess the meanings are correct, as I was asked for the meaning of "doughty", to which, given my colleague above, I had no choice but to answer "valiant", which is correct!

Fun and educative too Oct 21, 2007

I wonder if they really count those grains before donating

Thanks for the link Oct 22, 2007

Thanks Mihailo, that hit the spot as a little break.

I stopped at level 43.I don't remember the exact number of grains, I think ~ 300.

It's a great tool for procrastinating too. What a pleasure to put off what you should be doing just a little longer to do some good!:-)

One question: when you go back to it, if you play at about the same level, do you get the same words again?

Very nice and useful Oct 25, 2007

And since I thought it was so nice I decided to post it also in the Italian forum in order to involve also people, who perhaps skipped this forum.

I mentioned your name and the forum you posted this issue in.

I hope it's fine.

No problem Sandra... Oct 26, 2007

the more the merrier, let's hope someone does one for other languages too!

(Wouldn't that be a good project for a linguis-programmer?)

Regards
