Where Are You From? - Nationality Words and Terms

Quiz playing is a wonderful way to increase your knowledge of English as a Second Language. Remember that all of our ESL quizzes have titles that are both friendly and serious at the same time… In the case of this quiz you might like to tell your friends about “Where Are You From?” but no doubt your teachers will talk about the “Nationality Words and Terms quiz”! If you hear a specific term and you want to find a quiz about the subject then just look through the list of quiz titles until you find what you need.

There are lots of different words and terms that are necessary to know in any language when talking about your nationality. How many of these nationality words and terms will you know and recognise? There may be some other things wrong in the English here and there, too... only ONE version is right each time.
