    I think this is a poor test of English. With so many long and complicated options, it is “testing” much more than language competence. I can see a fluent student getting frustrated and just giving up or putting in random answers. People who like jigsaw puzzles might have a distinct advantage over others of the same or better English level.

      Certainly there are different learning styles and it does not appeal to everybody. I do not like tests at all but if you have a to reading tests this might help you develop your technique?

      Of course being a fluent speaker is different from being an efficient reader and test-taker. They are different skills.

      But vocabulary is useful to everybody.

      Thanks for the feedback.

  4. It is a challenger for those who think to know English like me. But it is a pleaseure for who knows it very well. I like this kind of test. I think it is a really way to know wether someone knows what proposed to do or not. I’m going to try if I’m able to do at least one. Take it easy if I take the answer in blank to fill out it after.

    Thank you very much.
