If you like online language games, you might like to try Merriam-Webster’s game called ‘True or False‘. It has all sorts of general knowledge questions. They call it a quick quiz ‘about stuff worth knowing’. I’m not sure about that, but you might like to give it a try and see how far you get.
Do you know when to use “there”, “their” and “they’re”? A lot of people get confused, so if you’re one of them, take a look at Merriam-Webster’s short video clip.
And just take a quick look how one can use these words correctly:
There is a very important question that needs to be asked.
Take a look over there. Their dog has just broken my window.
An overwhelming majority of bosses and workers think that some of their colleagues are underperforming.
They’re back on dry land after their record-breaking row across the Atlantic Ocean.
Is the word “none” singular or plural? That is the question. Merriam-Webster’s short video clip is here to answer it for you.
Here’s a visual vocabulary quiz from Merriam-Webster (the dictionary people). Each round has 10 questions, but you can play it again and again as they have lots and lots of different versions.
