  1. Dear teacher and classmates,

    I finally got to come in to Blog English-online class.
    I tried the link above and found only one question and I got the right answer!

  2. A very short quiz ;) But there are links to other quizzes

  3. Vanessa

    It's pitty for me to say that I made three wrong answers for three quizzes.


  4. Wrong answers can teach us more than correct ones. Use them to understand what kind of mistakes you make and why. Did you understand all the terms used (i.e. "rhetorical"? Is there a pattern? What was your original answer to the 1st one?

    Perhaps Yupaphat can help by explaining why/how she picked her answer. But let's wait until more have tried the quiz.
