I always thought that French-speaking countries of the Americas are not considered a part of Latin America - I might be wrong about the French Caribbean and French Guiana, but I am pretty sure I am right about the Francophone Canada and St Pierre et Miquelon.I recommend you change the "Romance language" clue to "Spanish and Portuguese".

Indeed, but Latin America still cannot be defined as the part of the Americas where Romance languages are spoken, since that area is wider, as I pointed out in my first comment.

Just saying "Romance languages" encompasses all of North America, South America, Western Europe (not the basque), and a chunk of North Africa.

French is but English isn't. The core of English is of Anglo-Saxon origin. It took heavy influence from Norman French later and evolved over time but it is still classified as a Germanic language.

In a quiz ostensibly covering two continents, it is not necessary to have two thirds of the questions all about one country!

Fill us in on other L-places that would be known to a wide sampling of English speakers here.
Of the 13 of 21 that are in the U.S., 3 are Spanish names, 2 are French and 1 is Italian. I can think of nary another south of the U.S. that hasn't been included.
