How to Learn about Different Countries

No more one needs overcoming geographical barriers for extending the boundaries of territorial knowledge; neither the concept of devouring travel-related literature holds true. Our generation has a privilege not known to the ancestors. The Internet is an encyclopedia that caters both in concise and elaborative fashions. Vital stats or comparative studies – one is bound by his/her own capacities when it comes to collecting varied sets of information on the different countries.

However, like everything else, it’s the procedure and the approach that matters. It sets the concreteness of the info you gather and sets the speed at which one collects it. Thus, one must first concentrate upon the statistics; once that’s wrought-up well, elaborative details on a country’s customs, cultures and the rest follow.

The following format has been found useful by many a people whose sole intention was to mug-up information on different countries for quizzes and interviews:

  • Name of the country.

  • The pronunciation of the name in the language of the country.

  • The name of the nation, the currency and the official language.

  • Other dialects of the language spoken.

  • The name of the religion(s) followed.

  • Total area covered by the country and it’s position according to the latitudes and longitudes.

  • The geographical boundaries in all directions.

  • The name of the capital and other major cities.

  • The climate and the seasons.

  • Names of the chief flora, fauna, prominent geographical features and natural deposits.

Learning a bit of history comes next and the rest, it’s how much info you want to gather on which aspects of the country. Remember, collect info as if you’re reading a fiction; stressing too much has often been found to confuse than to be beneficial to you.
