The internet, texting, and spellcheck have enabled Americans to get a little lazy with our grammar skills. While all those things are helpful and easy to use, they have also stopped us from practicing grammar skills the old-fashioned way. We now sometimes struggle to remember words that are notoriously easy! If you've got good grammar in today's technical age, pat yourself on the back—the skill is getting harder and harder to master!

Some of us, however, are still pretty old-fashioned—we view the English language as art and are voracious readers. We think reading is pretty cool and some of even want to pass that knowledge down to future generations by becoming teachers! If you are either a teacher or someone who just loves words, you'll have fun filling in the right one to keep these sentences correct in this fun but challenging quiz!

Do you have a degree in English? Do you know the rules of grammar? Do you teach English professionally? Do you love to read? Do you have a passion for both the English language and the classics? Do you think you know all there is to know about proper grammar? Are you what some would call a wordsmith? If you said "yes" to any of these questions, then this is the quiz for you. So, sit back, relax and flex your mental muscles to see just how well you do! Test yourself to find out if all that reading paid off. Good luck!
