Internet Vocabulary

Average: 4.2 (30 votes)

Ninety percent of today’s web users live in non-English speaking countries, yet 56% of online content is in English. Like English is considered the language of international business, English is also the unofficial language of the internet.

The internet is changing the English language, for example 'to Google' is a transitive verb meaning to use a search engine to find information. Seeing as you are using our website to learn English, you probably know quite a lot of internet related vocabulary!

Here is a quiz to see how many words you do know. For each sentence, choose the correct word. If there are any that you don't know, make sure you find out the meaning and write them down.

How many of these words do you use in your own-language? Has your language 'loaned' these words from English? 

Good luck!
