Blog entry Freerice goes Spanish. Muy bueno!

02 June 2011

Have you ever wondered if the words “consciencia” and “conciencia” have the same meaning? Does “Embarazada” mean embarrassed or just pregnant? Well, now you can find answers to these questions and more on the newly launched Freerice Español. (Late last week, you may have noticed a link appeared to this new version in the top right navigation of this site. See it now?)

The English version of Freerice was launched in 2007. Since then its players have grown to over 1.2 million every month raising enough rice to feed over 4.8 million people. “With the growing number of Spanish-speaking people around the world, Freerice Español presents a huge opportunity to reach this demographic who can help make a real difference in the fight against hunger,” said Nancy Roman, the World Food Programme's Director of Communications and Private Sector Partnerships Division.

If you don't speak Spanish, you will be pleased to know that this is just the first of many foreign Freerice language releases with Chinese, French, Italian and Korean versions underway.

The spanish section should be expanded. I know people who have taken only two years of spanish at school and can get almost every question correct. For fluent spanish speakers, it is useless. It should be made with words as eloquent as english vocabulary level 60.

also, a Japanese section should be developed.

Glad to see the Spanish version is in place now, reflecting the very large number of speakers worldwide. I hope more leading language versions can be added.
