Can You Complete These Tricky Sentences?
One of the most frustrating things for English language learners is the presence of words that sound identical but are spelled differently and have completely different meanings. It can even be tricky for native speakers who grew up learning those words if they aren’t up-to-date with their vocabulary!
‘Their, they’re and there’ is a common example, but there are many others including ‘effect and affect’ which trip people up constantly. You have to know the right grammar rules if you’re going to consistently get these answers correct.
Do you know which word to pick in each context? Give it your best shot, but remember, sometimes the most obvious answer isn’t the correct one, as what you’ve become used to using on a daily basis might not be ‘proper’ grammar. Take the quiz!
