What is your English level? You can give yourself a mark from 1 to 10 points, and our honest members can say if you are at the level you think you are or you may have given yourself too much or too little :)

I will start:
I think I'm 6/10.

I may not be a complete 10, but close to it. I attribute it to all the SAT practice I've been doing.

How much does Onan Goopta have?

1/10 ?

CooCooCachoo
Jan 2nd, 2006, 09:59 AM
8/10.

I know my English is better than quite some who rated their English higher than this, though. It has all got to do with the frame of reference you use. My English is very good, but there is so much improvement possible. Anyone who rates themself as 10/10 is a bit :cuckoo:

Mine had better be 10/10 :tape:

CCC, I'm definitely not :cuckoo: :p

10/10 implies perfection, no? I am sure your English is not perfect :ras:

Mine is 10/10.
I've been living in Canada for 10 years, I'd hope it's fluent.
Besides, I speak and write better than almost all students who were born there and do there schooling there, so said my professor. Of course on internet it's different :tape:

I'd say 6,5 or something, much to improve, especially reading a book in English isn't everything.

I speak fluently...I write well but I have some spelling and grammar mistakes. However, many Aussies, Americans and even English and New Zealanders who have more spelling and grammar mistakes than I do....so I guess I should be in the 8 to 9 category....I know someone on this board who would fit the 10 category very comfortably....;)

I'd give myself a 9/10. I've taken the SAT, TOEFL, GCE 'O' Level English Language and scored fairly good grades/scores. I love to write - it's a passion.

!<blocparty>!
Jan 2nd, 2006, 01:02 PM
8/9 out of 10. My English certainly isn't perfect.... 14 people on here voted perfect? :lol: Spelling is OK, vocab could be improved. I don't study English anymore, so. :p

Okay. I just assumed you'd be a 10, if you're British. My bad.

I study English at university and lived in the states for one year. My teachers say that I'm rather fluent in English which also shows in my grades, yet still I don't consider it to be perfect.

If English is your native language, you're still not perfect at speaking it.

In my honest and humble opinion, no one could ever be perfect at speaking a language. Moreover, some people here suffer of chronic overestimation :tape:

Jan 2nd, 2006, 03:20 PM
uhm, 10 I guess. Since I am British...

Since I'm told that the English language has about 40,000 words, and since I'm also told I certainly don't know more than somewhere between 10,000 and 15,000 words, I should give myself a 3/10. (Of course, knowing all 40,000 is impossible, and I'm also told that not many people - who's first language is English - know 20,000 or more words...)

I'd say I was an 9-10, depending on what I'm doing, as when I'm chatting on the internet/forums I start cutting down all my proper english to save time, what with typing etc. :D But certainly in real life ie: speech, or if I'm writing in an exam or whatever I'd say my english is close to perfect :angel: I certainly have not been marked down because of poor spelling, punctuation or grammar in many, many years! :D

Jan 2nd, 2006, 06:20 PM

:lol: Never assume that! :lol: I know many Brits who don't have a clue about grammar etc and probably wouldn't even be able to spell 'British' correctly!

I voted 8. My English is not bad, but still leaves room for improvement.

Jan 2nd, 2006, 08:36 PM
7/10 i guess though i got 300 on my TOEFL and 6/6 the essay but it really was way too easy :tape: I'd love to expand my vocab. :D

I know... some of my friends, who got A's at GCSE English still can't spell 'until' correctly. :tape: On the board, I usually judge someones spelling/grammar by their spelling of the words embarrassing and definitely. :p Loads of people get these two wrong, oh, and you're/your. ;)
