I sucked and only got 3 out of 8,lol. I call BS though...I grew up using a lot of the "american english" phrases...most people I grew up with did. We must have watched too many American movies or something.
lol I got 7/8 right, and I'm Canadian, eh? (plus, I consider myself British-English, rather than American-English). I think it's all those years of watching American TV hahaha that helped me.
There once was a girl who was very friendly, saying Hi to everyone she met. But as the years went by she either was rejected or made a lot of enemies. Consequently she became more and more reclusive to protect both herself and those she would no longer come into contact with: protecting herself from rejection and the others from her.
He he, I got all 8 questions correct! I am an expert! I rule the world! Or at least, the English speaking part of it!
It helps that I've read a lot of British literature in my historical and sociological studies of the British empire and of Europe and Asia in general. I've also studied abroad in UK twice, so that also helped. It's not so hard to recognize the colloquial structuring when you know what to look for.
Generally euros do not use as many articles in their speech, like 'the' and 'a'. The Russians I know really butcher the language when they talk, hehe, although I still like them a lot.
Cluelessness is a higher state of being; It takes a lot of thought to get here.
