6:42, new record! We did this quiz in my Spanish class in 2018 and since then I've gotten hooked on Geography. This site has taught me so much in terms of knowledge but also how to type very fast; especially from this particular quiz! Thank you, Jetpunk!

I have pretty much the same story of getting introduced to geography with my Spanish textbook having the Central American countries, but it probably started before that with my World History teacher introducing the class via Jimmy Kimmel's "Can You Name a Country?" from 2018

How I do this quiz:

Starting move is the acronyms for countries: UK, USA, UAE, DPRK, FYROM, PNG and then I do 'Congo' as that ticks off two countries.

Then I work my way through continents beginning with North America or Oceania where there are lots of small, easily forgotten countries. Hope this helps.
