The English Grammar test


Recommended Posts

I always moan about the way kids speak these days and we have mentioned it in other topics here on TLF. So here's a Grammar test to see if you can speak proper like what I do!!

 

You have 6/10 to beat after I thought I was better than I actually was, give it a try.

Technical specialist, if you please :-p

We use big words and grammar to impress marks with our diagnoses, thus enabling us to extricate more cash from their wallets.

7/10, and that as a foreigner who had Ds in English at school... Admit that 1 was a guess... still happy. Wifey ended up with 7 as well (fair enough, she studied inter alia English language)

I quit at #4 of 10 with only 1 on the board. I always hated English.

Maths, physics etc. That was me. :yes:

I lost that one also because I wasn't sure what was meant, the first person, the siblings of that first person and his father, or, the first person the father of the first person and the siblings of the father. It just goes to show how a meaning is lost with incorrect grammar or incorrect punctuation.
