  • Mood:

If only my English teacher was reading this

The Commonly Confused Words Test

You scored 100% Beginner, 100% Intermediate, 87% 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's 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.
Thank you so much for taking my test. I hope you enjoyed it!

Scary thing? This:
# Compared to users who took the test and are and in your age group:
  • 100% had lower Beginner scores.
  • 100% had lower Intermediate scores.
  • 100% had lower Advanced scores.
  • 100% had lower Expert scores.
I really hope that's because only two or three people in my age group took this test.
Other things:

I maintain the website for my class. During exam-time we have message boards for every subject to talk about the questions asked and stuff like that.
Yesterday I got an eMail from one of our few men who wanted me to change the subject line of his latest entry because part of it disappeared. The way it read, people might have thought he made a typo and tried to say he would cry now.
For some reason this really made me laugh.

Finally managed to see Alles auf Zucker! this weekend. Nice movie. Funny movie.
Also saw the trailer for Kinsey (03.03). If I have to content myself with trailers, I'd rather have seen H2G2. Mainly because a screen-sized 'Don't panic' would have lifted my mood even more.

Now I'll go back to lowering said mood.
Dear Prof. K-J., if you're telling us to buy your book, could you maybe mention *before* the exams (maybe in your lectures) that it's wrong on a number of things?
