It took us some time, but we are finally up with another test, the Spelling Test 1.
Spelling mistakes represent a common problem on the Internet. Sometimes just one letter separates two words with completely different meanings. Other times we end up transposing a vowel, and the result is hardly noticeable by the eye. Regardless, you should make sure that spelling mistakes are not crippling your writing, and this test is a good opportunity to do so. Here is a teaser:
9. It didn’t turn out the way we wanted, _________.
Do you think you can pass with 100% accuracy? Test your spelling skills now, and let us know the result!

Question five has a weird answer…
How come Geek? People forget to eat once in a while also 🙂 .
i has the 95% skor
100%. That was fun!
I got a 100%. My 5th grade teacher would be so proud (grin).
(And, “cUmpliments?” Tee!)
Deb, I was out of ideas on that one 🙂 .
95%. I knew I wasn’t sure about “embarrassment!”
I got 95%, “allright/alright/all right” always trips me up.
I was lucky to get 100% as I had to make a guess on “earnest payment” – this concept/terminology does not exist in the UK!
BTW, in Q2, option 1 and 4 are the same.
Akhil, they are not.
I guess it’s not too bad, considering English is not my mother tongue.
Missed the “all right” and the “embarrassment” ones.
I scored %100, because I knew ‘all right’ would be the answer, however, I think alright should have word status
95%, embarrassment got me 🙂
I scored 100. Looks as if those years as a copy editer payd off!
elkit, there was a restaurant here in town that once had a neon sign above the entrance that read, “Is everything alright?” I would go in and say, “No, it isn’t,” but the owner wasn’t amused.
I got number 13 wrong, but that is only because I have never used that word before.
Yes, I wasn’t sure of ’embarrassment’. But now I know it, thanks to the test!
I cannot believe I had an 80%. I think I should already use eyeglasses or join my kids in school.
That was a very entertaining spelling review, though.
Thanks for this.
As a non-native English speaker, I say, it’s not too bad. 😉
95% but I’m not embarrassed about it! 🙂
95% – fun.
90% here. 🙂
95% — I’m so embarassed! 😉
challenging a tad as my NZ english is not quite the same as your American english
90%, and since English is not my native tongue I was pleasantly ‘surpised’.
I wonder if non-native speakers pay more attention to spelling/grammar differences (its/it’s, you’re/your) sometimes?
It was interesting to take this test because I saw so many of the errors I encounter on a regular basis at work. However, I know that if any of the offenders took this test, their score wouldn’t quite be indicative of their tendencies, because they’d be explicitly focusing on the right answers. When they aren’t, though, it’s a free-for-all.
Good test, nonetheless, though. I got a 90%. I know I got the “alright” one wrong, and I think I must have gotten the “embarrassing” one incorrect as well.
I’ve got 85% to
It’s not to bad for a non English speaking person wow 🙂
Not that bad. 95%.
Ok, now you fine people willing to make the world speak better English, could you guys please give me a tip on ‘alright’?
Of course I know it came from ‘all right’. But what’s the deal? Why is the form ‘alright’ wrong? I thought it was actually more common than the separeted one. Does it sound/ look really that bad ?( I’m not a native speaker as well, so it sounds ok to me).
One more reason:
If I say ‘the answers were all right’ there’s no doubt. All of them were right.
But when I want to use it as a adjective?
Like in ‘It’s alright to improvise.’
Can I use it as an adverb?
Like in ‘I’m doing well’ = ‘I’m doing alright’ ?
Enlighten me on that please!
I like this way of refreshing the mind of students as well as English learners. Thank you
