For those of you working on Expand Vocabulary as your CAFE strategy, or who want to improve your knowledge of different words: Free Rice is a quiz based site which gives you a word, and you need to select the word from the list below it which means the same thing or very similar. In the picture above, the answer to “silence” is “quiet”. You can change your level to more difficult words if you are finding it too easy! Let us know if you learn any new words by posting them and their meanings in the comments 🙂 – Miss M
