Hello everyone! Have you missed solving our quizzes? I am coming to you with many new subjects, that will let you take a break and work out your brain. Today we take into account the second group. With this quiz, you can check your English knowledge. Answering the 20 questions will assure you about your level. You will find out if you are an English beginner, English student, English master, or English native. Some of the questions can be challenging but do not worry. I am sure that you can answer at least some of them. There is something for people at all levels.
I do not know about you, but I do not know anyone that could not speak at least one word in English. Even my grandmother that has never been abroad, knows how to count in English up to 12. English is mean of communication all over the world. It does not matter if you are in a country where English is the first language- it is the most common you will find people speaking it. That is why I always recommend people to study it at first. But do not forget other languages can be helpful as well.
To not leave you with words only, I will present you with some data.
People say that at least 20% of the world speaks English. Knowing that there are more than 7100 languages in the world, the result is impressive. English is a very old language. It dates back to 1066. You have to keep in mind that geography these days was much different than the current one. The area of today’s France invented the first form of English we know. I wonder how many of you know the family from which English comes. It is not an obvious thing. It is one of 44 Germanic languages. I was shocked when I first heard about it. English sounds much different than German, Swedish, or Dutch for me.
But now, let’s get to the huge values. The number of people that speak English is 1,35 billion. 360 million of them take English as their native language. Anyway, it is possible to gain the native level even if your country has a different first language. That is useful to use it as a lingua franca between European countries, but also in most countries of the world.
What is interesting- some countries, even if they are qualified to speak English, try to speak their languages. That is not even rude or negative from their perspective. That is about their mentality and culture. People from Italy or France do not like when tourist visit their country without the effort of studying their language. I have been in many situations when I saw other people were understanding English but were replying in their language. I hope that no one of you does it. That could make other people feel uncomfortable. They may lose confidence and the will to travel. We study languages to easier communicate with others- not to have conflicts.
If I can give you any advice, it would be to use the language you study as much as possible. It is never enough to just attend classes and do exercises. The most valuable thing is to try speaking with other people. If you do not feel comfortable with this you can try reading books and listening to music. But if the reason is not knowing anyone you can talk to, you should try one of the popular applications. Some apps allow people to talk to strangers from other countries to practice their language skills. If you have not tried that before, that is a perfect step to improve your skills. We live in lucky days that give us many possibilities. All we have to do is to use them properly. Of course, it applies to other skills. Nowadays, even the sky is not limited. Keep it in mind and grow up your passions, improve your skills. As English is the most popular language in the world- it is also easy to find several courses available for people around the world. Think for the future, and start doing things now. You will thank me later, I promise. No matter what job you do. One day you may need to communicate in English. That is almost a sure thing.
I think you are ready to check your English knowledge with our quiz. You know why it is that important to improve it and how many opportunities it can give you. If your result does not satisfy you, do not worry. You know exactly what to do so you can do better next time. Take a deep breath and check yourself with the 20 questions. I keep my fingers crossed for you. Good luck, You can do it!
