I am American and a retired teacher. It said I'm not up to American standards. Whose standard are they actually using? I pronounce English properly. The person who wrote this should have used a dictionary.

"What they don't know is that you're not pretentious. You're correct!" Or, better educated?!

Great result for me ... "not up to American standards" ... I'm very pleased about that as Americans don't speak English properly !

Results seem to be both random and arbitrary…also meaningless.

‘Not up to American standards’... c’mon when is a Brit who speaks the Queen’s English NOT UP to American standards. I luv America and Americans having lived in Virginia for three years - this Test, should either be for Americans or judged both on an American or Brit answering!!

Just had my mother take it, and she answered exactly the same as I did the first time, and SHE got "Your pronunciation is much better than most Americans". I think this just randomizes your result, as every time the pop-up says "you passed the test"...
