That's a Fail
It may be time to go back and read a few more books or practice with some more of our English quizzes to get back that English prowess you once had. If you are learning English, then you still have some ways to go, we're afraid. It's easy to forget our grammar, but read a few books and it'll come right back!
Passed With Crawling Colors
You passed, but hardly with flying colors. You still got less than half of the answers right, which means you still need to spruce up your English and refresh it. Try reading a few books to enrich your language and remind yourself some grammatical rules and spellings.
Good Job!
Well done! You have a pretty good score, which means you know your English grammar, spelling and some sayings. You must be a native English speaker, and one that does a fair bit of reading, even if only online. Good for you!
You ACED It!
This quiz never stood a chance against your grammatical chops. You have a great control over the English language, doubtless a native speaker, and one that does quite a bit of reading (books we hope) and loves knowing the language. You're probably quite verbal with a rich vocabulary to back it up!
