Suck at geography? Want to learn all the countries of the world in under a week?

http://www.purposegames.com is a web site where a user can create quizes for others to play online.

The developer of the site took the time to create some excellent geography quizzes (geo quiz. )  I used the countries quizzes to improve my understanding of geography.  Going in I could probably name about 30 countries on the blank map.  About a week later I had mastered all countries.  Understanding the basics of geography, starting with country location has greatly improved my understanding of the world.  Now if I meet someone from a different country, I can communicate with them starting with the simple point of reference of knowing where they are from.   People are surprised when I know the location of their country in say Africa, and can also drop references to surrounding countries.  I creates a sense of report.
 
Understanding country geography also improves one's ability to follow foreing policy and international news.  Knowing the names of all the countries and their geographical locations also helps to make the world a smaller place 'in mind.'  I no longer feel the world is large, mysterious, and indefinate and therefore feel closer to peoples from all nations.  I highly, highly recommend taking the countries geo quizzes and improving your general geography knowledge.  You will feel empowered.

Thanks for sharing. This sounds like a useful and interesting tool! Freerice.com is another great resource for learning geography and vocab (all while feeding the hungry).

Nice review. Sounds like a real useful tool. I keep hearing that young people are very weak in geography. Sounds to me like this just might be a part of the solution. Welcome to Lunch!
