Are you intelligent or are you dumb?

Wendy . Blog Published 06 March 2009

You are probably a university student working on your degree. You're studying English, doing research for your projects, and getting ready for a semester or year abroad , maybe on the Erasmus program. Then you'll do a couple of internships so that you can get a feel for the different options available to you. You hope to get a good job, possibly in a multinational. You'll have great career opportunities because you're getting good grades and taking your studies seriously.

Some of you are already employed. You're working on an advanced degree: an MA or a PhD. You've found that you still need to improve your English because you want to travel to countries where Spanish is NOT spoken. You want to go to conventions overseas, and give presentations in English yourself.

You're a very intelligent person, but sometimes you like to test yourself. Sometimes you just like to have fun. Look at the vocabulary and then take the test at the bottom. It is very un-academic, but kind of fun. Try it ! Are you dumb?

Careful. There is one trick question.


your degree: your major, university studies: tu título de estudios/licenciatura etc

doing research: "hacer investigación"

abroad: to another country: "al extranjero"

internships: practical training on the job

get a feel: learn what something is like by doing it: aprender practicando

available: possible: "disponibles"

career opportunies: professional opportunities: " desarrollo profesional"

grades: "notas/calificaciones"

MA: Masters degree: "Un master oficial2

PhD: Doctorate: "doctorado"

improve: to get better: "mejorar"

trick question: Question that uses a play on words: "Pregunta con trampa"

try it: attempt to do it: "pruébalo"

dumb: stupid: "tonto"

I think you just learned or reviewed some vocabulary.
Now, try the test.
