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. ;-) :-D

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. ;-)

I left a message to Tdol in the Delphi forum.
