Possibly found a small bug. The past tense of "leap" in Q 9 looks like in American spelling, "leaped".

Hello Joking_Clock 

In British English, we use both forms; leaped and leapt. In the past, 'leapt' was more popular, but both are OK now. I think they use both forms in American English too. When I am not sure, I usually look at the Cambridge learner's dictionary online: https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/leap

Good question! The answer is both are possible. Equaliser is more common in the UK and equalizer is used in the US.

Hi ProfeMarcos

Welcome to Premier Skills English! I can see that you have done lots of quizzes already! It's great to have more fans from Uruguay on the website. Are you a big fan of Luis Suarez?

An open goal is when there is nobody between the striker and the goal. The attacker only needs to kick the ball into the net. Often a striker takes the ball round the goalkeeper and puts the ball into an open goal.

Hope that helps!
