If you use Microsoft Word as your word processing program, you can check in there, too. Press the F1 key or click on Help, and enter

**readability**. You'll get directions on how to calculate this.

I put your two sentences into Word and here are the results:

__Counts__
Words: 40

Characters: 183

Paragraphs: 1

Sentences: 2

**Readability**
Passive sentences: 100%

Flesch reading ease: 68.0

Flesch-Kinkaid Grade Level: 8.7

You'll need to interpret all that yourself!!
