Simile Quizzes

When is a simile not a simile? A simile might be like a metaphor, but a metaphor isn't a simile. Can you tell the difference? For example, in the following sentences, which is a simile and which isn't? "He wolfed down his food" and "He was hungry like a wolf". Do you know the difference? If you get an answer right, will you smile like a happy clown?

Do you look at your quizzes like a bear looking at his berries? Are you as ready for answering our quizzes like a runner on the starting line? Is your mind alive like the birds on a spring morning? If you know your English, your work terms and are ready to show us that you're intelligent like Shakespeare, then I think it's time for you to get going with our quizzes on similes. Have fun!
