Quiz playing is a wonderful way to increase your knowledge of English as a Second Language. Remember that all of our ESL quizzes have titles that are both friendly and technical at the same time… In the case of this quiz you might like to tell your friends about “Tell Me Another” but no doubt your teachers will talk about the “Verbs With 2 Objects quiz”! If you hear a technical term and you want to find a quiz about the subject then just look through the list of quiz titles until you find what you need.
Tell me another looks at verbs with two objects.
If I give my dog a bone, that action involves two grammatical Objects: the bone (the Direct Object: the item actually given), and the dog (the Indirect Object, to whom it is given).
Languages can handle 'three-way' verbs in various different ways, sometimes depending on whether either of the two objects is in the form of a noun or pronoun. This quiz will give you practice at handling such sentences, which should be useful if your own language deals with them differently.
'Tell me another' is what English speakers may say if they have just heard something surprising, or funny... or which they suspect may not be true!
