#EngGame: Nationality

Here I have a little game to play. If some of you are tired and stressed out because you’ve just finished your work or lecture, I hope you’ll will refreshed.

How many nationality do you know in this world? You might have heard of the famous ones such as American, British, Chinese, Korean. But this time, I want to measure your knowledge by letting you guess the nationality for people who live in a country we rarely hear about.

I will give you 8 clues which are the suffix usually put after the name of the country. They are: -ian, -ean, -an, -ese, -er, ic, -ish, and –i. Okay, let’s begin and I will start from the easiest one. I bet you have heard or read about it somewhere.

  1. Belgium = _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Egypt = _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Sweden = _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Iraq = _ _ _ _ _
  1. Bangladesh = _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Finland = _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Poland = _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Switzerland = _ _ _ _ _
  1. Kuwait = _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  1. Morocco = _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

 

Answer:

  1. Belgian
  2. Egyptian
  3. Swedish
  4. Iraqi
  5. Bangladeshi
  6. Finnish
  7. Polish
  8. Swiss*
  9. Kuwaiti
  10. Morrocan
  • You might heard that Swiss is a name of a country. You might also think that Swiss is the other name of Switzerland or Sweden, but apparently Switzerland and Sweden are two different countries. And Swiss is not a country, but a nationality.
