RICE GAME

I have pinched this from Kyles's beautiful blog. [Do go and take a look.] If any of my FCE or CAE students are reading, do try the game for it will help your English while you help people!

I have donated 1,000 grains of rice! And delayed my bedtime far too long!

Beaman said...

That's rather addictive. Very good link.

Hi, Liz. I kept doing it, too! Ciao, Beaman. Addictive it is - the wonderful Kyles found the link, not me!

I agree with Liz and beaman - it IS addictive and I got up to level 44, donating over 1240 grains of rice! Those were very hard words, but a knowledge of certain languages did help.

I have played this game many times but I have never got to be the perfect 50, not even once.
Colin Campbell has it on his sidebar so he must get sucked in regularly.

Now I just have to find a way to work some of those words into conversation.

Well done, Leslie and glad you enjoyed it. Hi, jmb. I couldn't stop last night! Thanks, Kyles. I love your "dream in colour" blog and will add it to the blogroll later. Ciao, Emmanuele. Quanto sei gentile! Sei un ottimo studente. Ci vediamo venerdi.

That was fun and now I'm addicted! So far 1000 grains and counting. I'll put that link in my next blog. Thanks Welsh!

It's an excellent game. I had the link before then accidentally deleted it. Thanks for finding it for me!

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Hi, pink. So pleased you like it too but sorry you got addicted!! Thanks, Jams. You are always so kind.

Beaman said...

I wonder if there is a German version of this.

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Hi, beaman. I'll bet there is but I wouldn't know how to find it.
