An English Quiz

Here’s a quick quiz, with questions from real tests, to see where you can go to high school in Tonga.

1. Which is the opposite of drama?
a. Play
b. Game
c. Song
d. Trick

2. The woman bought ______ flour from the store.
a. many
b. a
c. much
d. one

3. The dog _________ under the table.
a. lied down
b. lay down
c. laid down
d. layed down

Even if you can figure an answer from those questions (and others like it), remember that these Tongan students are taking what is basically a fluency test after only three years of English. Though, obviously, the fluency is fluency according to the Tongans who wrote the test.
