Tonight hubby and I decided to play along with CBC's Test the Nation (the online quiz is still there for anyone who wants to try) and I was around 90% up until word origins, where I bombed with 2/8. Maybe history really isn't my thing *g*.

My overall score was 58/70. At 82.8% I didn't even beat some of the groups in the studio audience!

Congrats, that's a great score. I'm glad I'm not the only one that had problems with Word Origins.

Wow,lol, I did the test too, and oh well... but I have to say I was quite surprised with the results since I am still learning English, so I really enjoyed doing it.

My results are: *drums rolling* ... 43 out of 70. Which I have to say, I found not too bad because I still have popular english slang words and synonyms/homonymes etc. that I still need to work on.

I really like this test because it showed me my flaws, so it will help me a lot to correct these flaws, and to pinpoint them more precisely.

-I wish there had been a solutionnaire though, because it would have helped me to find where my mistakes were exactly, in order to correct them.

But you, you did very well Coreen!

Thanks for sharing this, I really enjoy doing it. Would you mind me posting the test in my Journal?

Thanks!
Jude :D

That is fantastic! I couldn't imagine what my French grammar results would have been! I agree with you, the answers would have been nice, I did get to see some of my mistakes, since I did it with the TV show, but I can't remember them all now. Have fun with the test in your own journal - torment your friends with it *g*
