Nice! Jul 29, 2013

I'm glad I had my sound muted, though. My husband thinks I'm working!icon_eek.gif

I wonder how experienced proofreaders fare, compared to translators who don't do proofreading, and compared to non-linguists.

Don't like it Jul 30, 2013

I got through level 1 OK, but then I kept failing on the first question of level 2 - Its time - so I gave up. Can anyone who passed - selecting Its time as wrong - justify this answer?
