You are a MASTER of the English language!


While your English is not exactly perfect,
you are still more grammatically correct than
just about every American. Still, there is
always room for improvement...


How grammatically sound are you?

Thanks for the tip about it being American! I scraped a:

Grammar God!
You are a GRAMMAR GOD!


If your mission in life is not already to
preserve the English tongue, it should be.
Congratulations and thank you!

“Don’t move,” his voice whispered, “Trust me.”

Hope felt a shiver of anticipation run through her body at Matthew’s words.

“I do,” was her only reply as she surrendered control of the seduction to him.

George looked around and said, “We heard noises through the ceiling so we thought we’d come up and see you.”

“Yes,” added Fred, “funny thing is, though, in addition to the loud thumps we could have sworn we heard two different sets of footsteps.”

“Damn,” Hope thought, “we forgot to charm the floor!”

I also got "You are a GRAMMAR GOD". Not bad for someone whose native language is not English. biggrin.gif

And yes, I caught a spelling mistake: ___ faced turned a bright shade of red. (I assume it meant "face" instead of "faced").

You are a STUDENT of the English language!


You are on your way to becoming
gramatically sound; however, you must keep
studying if you ever want to be a master.  You
do manage to speak better than most Americans,
but then again, that's not really saying too
much...


How grammatically sound are you?
brought to you by Quizilla


Is this good or bad?
If good, then great!
If bad, I can speak better English, trust me.

Also, to get the picture, I went back in, selected answers at random and became a GRAMMAR GOD. That's saying something!

QuickHare - what did you do to get the pic appearing in your post? The html was driving me mad when I tried to get it to work.

1. In the HTML, you'll find the bit (near thes start) saying < img src="http://...." .

2. Take the bit in the speech marks and copy it.

3. Delete the entire < img bit to the > and place the cursor at the start of the post.

4. In the reply/post page, click the IMG button and paste the URL into the dialog.

5. Click OK, and there it is!

blushing.gif Aww, I'm a Grammar God! I feel so proud. Considering I was cringing terribly over the hanging preposition in that quiz, I think this is a good thing.

Go New Zealand English!! It's not as bad as they think! biggrin.gif

Stumbled upon this and having not previously taken the test gave it a go. As for my result, all I can say is "Ditto".
