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'. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Have a nice Sunday!!

Matias O said...

Miss Ale I didn't know all the 100 word I only knes some but when I saw the answers and some of them were not so used like UP,etc.I enjoyed the game and I did like 25 words.After a while yes I agree with some people you get bored

Tomas S said...

Miss Ale I played the game and I only could do 20/100. I had to give up because I couldnt find more and when it showed the other words I couldnt believe it because there were all words that I know very well.
But talking away the part that I couldnt found more words I enjoyed ver much the game.

Conrado MF said...

Hi ale
The game was long but i palyed it anyway i got 52 words out of 100. The game was reeeealy difficult.

Lou I said...

Hi miss Ale:
I just put and, and it put me 3 answers correct, so i didnt really understand the game. I could do 12 words, really think i would do less than that.

andy e said...

I say this exercise is like a game and the idea is a very interested one. It is somehow difficult because in the moment time passes and you want to write words it is like if you never learn English so you get your mind in white and you don't know what to do. That is what happened to me.

Francisco I said...

Miss Ale

See you tomorrow!

Agus T said...

Sofi C 6A said...

Hi Miss Ale,
I think it was a good way to learn but at first I didn't know what to do so I clicked on start but didn't know what to do fut finally I saw the littile box to type in words and started typing words but as soon as I got to 19 I got board 'cause I didn't remember any more words, but I still think it is a fun way to learn, just like any game you put on the blog!
See you tomorrow
