Sporcle


Today's activity comes from the Sporcle website and is a quick test to see if you know the 100 most commonly used words in the English language.

You will see a grid with 100 space and a time limit of 12 minutes set and ready.

Before you start, think about what some of the most commonly used words might be. In English articles, pronouns and prepositions are used in almost every sentence, so you might think about starting with those.
When you are ready click on 'Ready? Click to Start'.
