Getting to Know Ukraine

When I was living in Riga, Latvia I instructed people in the English language. Some of the material I have still saved on my PC include information about different countries. These quizzes should be simple for you because all you have to do is complete the sentences in correct English. Sort of like a quiz to train your brain and learn some facts about another country. I hope you enjoy this. In the top photo, you can see the Ukraine flag.

    • I don’t let it worry me because the material that I used for this quiz came from a folder that I had of English language material that I used for instruction. It was made to give information on certain countries and to instruct correct grammar with simple sentences that have only one answer. I will be putting up more quizzes like this, Norman.

  1. You have to be careful with a quiz like this if English is not your first language. There are several questions here where more than one answer is possible, and there are also some grammatical mistakes in the sentences from which a word has been omitted.

    • First of all, I am a native English speaker. I went over my sentences and only one answer is possible. At least that is how I see it. As for grammatical mistakes interesting perhaps in my old age, I am losing it and I would appreciate you pointing that out to me. I never argue with anyone but I do not see a problem with this quiz. However, since you feel differently I would appreciate it is you could take the time and point out all my grammatical mistakes and where more than one answer is possible. I will await your information and I promise I won’t dare put up another such quiz until then. I am sending you all of the sentences as they have been completed in a private message and await your verdict. You can be sure I did not change anything all of the sentences are as they were posted in the quiz only completed with the right answers
