Here are some online games to help you learn important vocabulary from the US Bill of Rights.
Have some fun learning vocabulary from the US Declaration of Independence. I especially recommend "Word Shoot."
In case you could not get it, here is the famous quotation from the Declaration of Independence that we have been puzzling you with for the past few posts:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Did you figure it out?
Still can't make out the famous quotation we posted a couple of days ago? Here is an earlier translation again:

What was the original English?
Still haven't gotten our quotation from the Declaration of Independence? Here's one step closer to the original:
The pursuit of all these apparent freedom and true equality in the creative life of happiness are created equally.
Still don't have yesterday's quotation from the US Declaration of Independence figured out yet?
Let's step back one translation and get a little closer to the original:
"All of these apparent freedom and for equality, the equality really creative life of happiness."
Does that help?
This is a famous quotation from the US Declaration of Independence, repeatedly translated into Japanese and then back to English until the English translation is identical twice. The fun challenge: can you figure out the original English?
"All of these apparent freedom and equal for equality really creative life of happiness."
