Grammar Quiz 2

During versus While

When they write essays, and when they speak, my students often have difficulty in using “during” and “while” correctly. I always tell them it’s easy to remember that during is followed by a noun. Look at the spelling for the easy way to remember. I mean that the word “during” includes the N for Noun: d-u-r-i-N-g. That’s all you need to remember!

Please try this easy quiz. There are six examples using “during” and six examples with “while.” If you remember my hint above, I’m sure you can be perfect!

Good luck!
