    14 out of 15 Most of them I never heard used by Brits. I worked for a British company for 24 years, but in the US.



    Some of the other quizzes were good. One said I will live to 109. I guessed all the buildings right.

    You got:

    12 out of 15! You could be British!

    With 12 out of 15, you definitely know your way around British idioms. Either you managed to get very, very lucky with your answers or you must have spent some time in Britain. You would definitely be able to blend in with the natives. Anyone fancy a cup of tea?. There's no way that your friends will be able to match your score. Why not share this quiz and find out?

    15​ Not surprising I suppose. I think I must have used all of them at some time or other.
