Grammar Quiz

We all learned our grammar in different ways, from different sources. Perhaps you learned from your teacher, perhaps from a parent, perhaps from your friends — or perhaps you never learned it at all. This page is here to guide you through the maze called U.S.-English. You’ll be challenged to learn the names of the parts of speech and their positioning in sentences and paragraphs. You’ll have fun correcting the examples given. And in the process you may pick up something you didn’t know before.
