Damn (don't know what I got wrong) !!!

You scored 100% Beginner, 100% Intermediate, 100% Advanced, and 76% 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!

CHUFFED! I am an "English Genious" :p :D :ok:

English is not my mother language and I live in a land far away (sounds like the lyrics to something). And I am not English. Shouldn't this be "A genious in english" rather than "An English Genious"? Am I still eligible? Help!

(looks outside the window, notices the nice weather, goes out; promises to self to do it more often) :uhoh: :\ :ugh:

I don't agree that it's country-neutral - I would never use nauseated or critique (v).

And I can think of canals (well one at least) through which water flows from a river, to the sea.

I find it hard (but not difficult) to accept I'm slightly less than perfect.

Ah DJ - that's where my points went !

As a bit of a canal buff, I assure you that all canals have a flow (otherwise they would be a ditch and not need the locks).

I've been robbed !!!

Oh, and all rivers flow directly into the sea. The question asked about "Water from the river flowed into the sea via a ---------"
Thus the water has already reached the sea having flowed from the river. If we are now talking about a bit of sea, it's a channel.

This score does not reflect an inability to converse intelligibly, but it does, however, reflect your inability to determine the proper spelling and/or uses of many commonly confused words of the English language. There is no reason to feel bad though. They are commonly confused, so you're not the only one!

Thank you so much for taking my test. I hope you enjoyed it!

You should be nominated for the Nobel Prize for Literature forthwith and made Professor of Long and Dificult words at Cambridge University this very instant".
