My problem is I'm not great with the shapes of countries. I know general shapes, but there are 196/197 countries in the world, and a lot of them are fairly similar. Plus they don't give you any size context, so you don't know if it's huge or small. So most of the time, the first choice is going to be an educated guess. But after I get my bearings, I'm able to narrow it down pretty quickly. Someday we'll get a country I just know, and I'll get it in one.
Well that'll gel nicely with your earlier learninguse a map
The websites I use have games to learn the territories, as well as countries. Sometime I guess I'll have to learn all of those, too. Not right away, though.Well that'll gel nicely with your earlier learning
First time some South Pacific island I didn't know came up, I brought up a map too afterwards and at least learned the names so the direction-distance clue would be useful.
South Atlantic is easier, only a few there south of Cape Verde. South Pacific is littered, still can't remember all the names, never mind shapes.
