About This Quiz

Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. These words make up the basis of English grammar. There are millions of people who grow up learning English, and it's taught in schools all around the world. Even with it being forced into the curriculum, there are tons of native speakers who still can't seem to master the grammar. If this is hard for them, you can only imagine how it is for English as a Second Language (ESL) students! Can you prove that you know the basics and pass this advanced ESL quiz?

Around the world, you'll find 360 million people who speak English as their first language. While that seems like a small figure compared to the 7.5 billion people in the world, the number becomes more impressive when you include all the English speakers. Although 360 million speak English as their first language, there are around 1.5 billion people who speak English in general. This is 20% of the world's population! You'll find English as the official language in countries like Singapore, Kenya and Ireland. In countries such as Brazil, Spain, Russia and dozens more, their natives would have to enroll in an ESL course. Learning English words is one feat, but mastering the grammar is another accomplishment, one that many native speakers have yet to do. Have you? Whether English is your first language, second or maybe even third, test your grammar knowledge with this advanced ESL quiz!
