Spreak gud Engrish

I am a big fan of the English language. And I encourage anyone, no everyone to learn to speak it as best they can. I attribute much of my limited success in life to my ability to clearly speak and comunicate. My writen grammer is far from perfect (as anyone who reads this blog can attest) and the widespread use of internet lingo isn't helping things. I was still pleased tro see that I still remember some of the basics. Go take the test for yourself. I know, it's kind of a flashback to High School, but in a good, non socially awkward way.

You scored 92% Beginner, 92% Intermediate, 93% Advanced, and 93% Expert!

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!

Kollin: Actually, the correct response is: "Not too bad even if I do say so myself." LOL

BTW, if you are looking for a unique and charming book on grammer, then let me suggest the "Comma Sutra" (which is this month's offering in my bathroom) and/or "The Deluxe Transitive Vampire."

Go for the Comma Sutra. Not just because its featured at the Dale WC (which has a finer library than most Metropolitan population centers) but because the other book had all kinds of words and rules in it that make my brain hurt.
