  1. Very interesting site. After going through your lists, I have to admit I don’t know all the names of all the countries in Europe including the capitals. It is great fun to learn these names with the activities you have set out. Good fun way for kids to learn all these country names and its capitals as well. Great work, Julia!

  2. Hi Julia,

    what a fun quiz you’ve put together here! I really like it, especially the “fill-in-the-gaps” style quiz with the missing vowels. That’s a great idea. I am from Europe myself, and I learned alot by going through the list. Back in school we had to learn a lot of these, but obviously, you forget most of them over the years. So it’s a lovely challenge. My son is 3 years old now and it’s probably a bit too early to go through this kind of quiz. On the other hand, I noticed how he is more and more interested in our old terrestrial globe! Every now and then we sit in front of it and he wants me to explain what this is all about! So lovely 🙂

    So thanks again for your inspirational post!

    All the best,
    chris

    1. Yes Chris – this is definitely not for 3 year-olds!

      I’m glad you like the fill in the missing gaps activity. 

      With children you could just copy and paste a few depending on age, or for an adult quiz use them all and maybe even take out a few more letters.

  3. Excellent pieces of information!  I have been a special educator for 17yrs and also enjoy teaching and coaching.  I especially enjoy working with individuals with special needs.  The site you provided is very inspirational and will bring value to many parents out there looking to do additional educational activities with them.  Please keep creating great content in this subject area!  Nice Work!

  4. I am always frustrated by many American’s lack of history and geography knowledge. Many barely know where the capital of our own country is. I looked at these lists and saw that I didn’t know many of the European capitals however!

    Good for you for spreading this basic information that most of us don’t know! I now have a few more committed to memory. 

    Thanks!

    Jessica

    1. Hi Swangirl,

      I was quite surprised that I didn’t know all of them – so I enjoyed creating this for others to enjoy and benefit from.
