You did so extremely well, even I can't find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don't. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you're not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!
Só não saquei essa divisão entre beginner, etc. Cada página do teste é um nível?

edit: sorry!  :vergonha:
I didn't understand the division among beginner, intermediate, etc. Each page is a level?

It seems so. Most questions are actually quite easy. I got confused with "awhile, a while" and "hanged" and "hung". "Hearty" was
an honest mistake.

Actually, it has overestimated my English.

Odd. I was sure my score should be better. Then I came across this in the Answer Key page:

Citar
It's not my fault!
Regarding your results page

This is how it works: I wrote the questions, and I assigned points to each correct question. The program (or whatever it is called) on OKCupid calculates your score based on your answers and the points that I assigned to each answer. Sometimes its calculations are wrong, giving you 0% when you answered all of them correctly in reality. I am very sorry about this; however, there is nothing I can do about it! That is one of the main reasons I created this blog - so you can check your answers. Please don't get mad at me and post the fact that OKCupid scored your test wrong.

At any rate:

Every single question is about spelling. And, let me say: if Portuguese has, to my eyes, a horrible and unpredictable spelling, English makes this even worse. This' the reason why spelling bees are so more popular in anglophone coutries than lusophones.
