How good is your grasp of English?

Apologies if this is a repost.

my bike
I'd like to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandpa
not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.

Re: How good is your grasp of English?

You scored 100% Beginner, 93% Intermediate, 93% Advanced, and 72% Expert!
You have an extremely good understanding of beginner, intermediate, and advanced level commonly confused English words, getting at least 75% of each of these three levels' questions correct. This is an exceptional score. Remember, these are commonly confused English words, which means most people don't use them properly. You got an extremely respectable score.

You did so extremely well, even I can't find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don't. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you're not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!


I dun speek englush gud !

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming...'Wow! What a ride!

Your test results are extremely interesting. Though your test scores in the beginner, intermediate, and expert levels weren't very high, you got at least 75% of the advanced level questions correct. Possibly you guessed very well in the advanced level section? I don't know what else to say. You puzzle me immensely. But....

I don't kill flies but I like to mess with their minds. I hold them above globes. They freak out and yell, 'Whoa, I'm way too high!'

Re: How good is your grasp of English?

Shouldn't the title be "How well do you grasp the English language?"

My wife, who has a degree in English, would disagree with this.

That's inconsistent with the analogy. How about:

"How firm is your grasp of the English language?"


**edit**

Or,

"How firmly do you grasp the English language?"

And then there's this asshole...
