Let’s start this week with a little lightheartedness, with a pinch of humiliation. Don’t worry, the humiliation will be mine.
I got an email from somebody called Emma last week, she wanted to know how much I really knew about the Land Down Under. She could see that I ran a website with loads and loads of information about living in Australia, so surely my head was full of Australian facts?
So instead of a normal brain with the usual information in it, like this…
Emma wanted to know if my brain was simply full of Australian stuff and wondered if I would take her Austrivia test. So I did. Here’s my score…
10 would have been a pretty good score if there had only been 10 questions, but there weren’t, there were 16. It was multiple-choice as well, so even somebody who only spoke Russian would have probably got four questions right.
As you can see in the report I got with my score, they say “…you’re not quite an Aussie expert yet.”
So the game is up for me; it seems I’ve been rumbled. If you want to take the test, and it does literally take just three minutes or so, click on the image below…
Two of the questions I got wrong I think I should have done better with. The other four though, well, all I have to say to you is, good luck. Actually I think my score of 10 out of 16 was pretty good. See if you can beat it.
I did take the test a second time and I got all 16 right on that occasion.
Proving, if nothing else, that my memory is still sound. If I’d managed to have done that the first time though, instead of being told I was not quite an Aussie expert yet, I would have got “Bonza score, you’re practically a local!”
Which, of course, I am.
