You scored 92% Beginner, 92% Intermediate, 100% Advanced, and 80% Expert!

Not very good for a native speaker eh? I am feeling kind of brain-cloudy today though, to give a lame excuse.

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!
Thank you so much for taking my test. I hope you enjoyed it!
How did I do better at Expert than beginner? :eek:
I'll pass it on to my g/f and her friends - I need all the help I can get :D

Fun! I think I didn't get a perfect score because I didn't choose any of the either/all/none options. Now I guess I should go look at the correct answers.

You scored 100% Beginner, 100% Intermediate, 93% Advanced, and 80% Expert!

Those expert questions, such as awhile / a while, really threw me. I always have to look that one up.

Wordmunger, that awhile one tripped me up too...I contemplated the any of the above option, but....

BTW, the main dating match test on OKCupid is great. There's a question that says, if you have an STD, go here (and points to match.com). :D

In my own defense; I timed myself and finished in 2:37. Who am I kidding...

That one also threw me... I didn't really know about "awhile".

"Back of the net...!!!!"

Straight 100%, didn't seem too hard to me.

(Damn right too, it's the only language I speak) :D :D

Still, I don't claim to be perfect in anything other than my taste in women (my wife is sitting next to me as I type...) :p

I missed the hanged / hung question and I didn't know the difference between stationary / stationery. Not bad for an engineer :) I'm not sure what happened with the beginner section, I never saw it.

Oh, well. I hope you don't think any less of me.

*covers ears to hide from gales of derisive laughter and cracks about how people couldn't possibly think any less of me than they already do*

Of course this means very little. I'm not very eloquent when speaking or typing but I do know the proper words to use in a given situation.
