That's pretty tough. I only got 41. It definitely makes you feel like an idiot when your time is finished and they pop up all of the ones you missed.

I got 40. That just proves most of the words I know are uncommon, like flibbertigibbet and shower.

I gave it to my brother and he got all 100.. but I guess you can just google "common english words" while you're doing it and they are in exact order.

That's not surprising to me because usually when you learn a 2nd language the first words you learn are conjunctions and basic words like these.

That's because everybody is so negative.
