English Quizzes & Trivia

Do you know your adverbs from your adjectives? Are you well read in Eliot, Ellison, and Ernest Hemingway – have you covered Shakespeare from cover to cover? Can you pick themes and tones out of prose and poetry with equal ease, and can you rhapsodize about rhetorical devices until the metaphorical cows come home?

Whether you’re at ease with the education you get in English class, or you can’t tell an article from an aardvark, we have the solution for you: either convey your vivacious command of verbiage by knocking the socks off of our English trivia quizzes, or put some pep in your test prep by using this chance to practice what you didn't pick up the first time around!
