    There are, unfortunately, some bugs in the quizzes. When I took the Already/Yet quiz (Intermediate) I was surprised at a couple of the answers I had chosen. I thought maybe I had somehow goofed, but it happened again on the Quite/Rather (Advanced) quiz (which seems to be a test of BE). Just to be sure, I clicked on Reset then took the quiz again and wrote down my answers. Sure enough, on question 3 I picked 3, but the computer told me I picked 2.

    Just thought you ought to know.

    :)

    I've just looked at this, and the code is working correctly. The code uses a zero based index for the answers; '0' for answer 1, '1' for answer 2 and '2' for answer three.

    Those numbers were there only so I could debug the code when writing it and should not have been left in the results page. I've now deleted it. Thanks for the head-up.

    A question. In the quiz on British spelling you have two questions about organize. Did you mean to do that? (I got one wrong and one right. ) (Overall, I got eight out of ten, which I think is not bad.)

    Overall, it looks pretty good. It should prove quite helpful to ESL learners. Do you want me to tell you about any typos I find?

    :)

    It's always great having someone else proofreading for us, but it's TDOL who writes most of the content on site so comments and suggestions about that should be directed towards him.

    Thanks for testing it out for us. It IS much appreciated.
