Yes, it’s been a while since I updated this series. For today, we will focus on one site and explore its branches. And the site is going to be www.okcupid.com.
Yes, the name sounds like it’s an online dating site. Yes, the site is, as their banner says, is:
OkCupid: 100% free. The best dating site on Earth.
Well, I am not going to teach you how to find soulmates and sexmates here (sorry, bachelors). Instead, we are going to focus on the tests offered on the site.
Yes, there are literally hundreds and thousands of tests here, made by people focusing on different topics from languages to science and technology. What I am going to do here is give you five sample tests from the site.
Be warned though: this is somewhat biased, as I am posting only links to what interests me, specifically on the topic about languages. Therefore, I am encouraging you to explore the site, finding tests which suit your tastes. As I have said earlier, the site is teeming with tests.
Now, here we go:
1. The World Languages Test
2. The REAL Computer Science Acronym Test
3. Guess The Language Test
4. The Languages of the World Test
5. What kind of Programming Language are You?
That’s all. ‘Til next time. 🙂
Your imeem is blocking your blog post.
Good day, world! Since I am now into reading ebooks (currently through my phone), I have decided that, since I now have a reliable internet connection, I will post my reviews (maybe personal analyses would be the more apt term) on the books I have finished reading. This is to let me tickle my brain cells during moments of boredom or during moments of inspiration (which I really do wish to come more often).
Most probably, majority of these reviews would be in English, since that’s the language of most of the books I am reading/have read. I will follow this rule, though: I will write reviews in the language the book I am reviewing is originally written in. That is, I will write in English when the book I am reviewing is in English; I will write in Filipino when the book I am reviewing is in Filipino; and so on. In case of translations, the rule would be “I will write reviews in the language the book I am reviewing (and have a copy of) was translated into.
I do hope that this enterprise would be a fun one, since I don’t really like being burdened into write something about a book when I don’t really want to. I also hope that my audience (if any) will enjoy my analyses, and are perfectly welcome to leave comments/opinions/suggestions/violent reactions in the comments section below.
As you might have already guessed, this is only an introduction, for want of having a “cover page” for this “series”. I will post (hopefully) shortly my review on Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, which I have finished reading the day before yesterday.
Again, good day to all of you, and thank you for reading this introduction to my new (hopefully) entertaining series. 🙂
