Study Your Europe - A valuable reference resource.
Quiz Your Europe - A point and click style quiz.
Examine Your Europe - An exam of all the topics.

Detailed information on each feature is provided including audio pronunciation of each feature. The Study Section enables the user to have a clear understanding of each geographic feature before proceeding to the Quiz and Examine sections.

The Study area of Know Your Europe has been greatly improved and now provides a description of every feature and includes over sixty scenic photos. Each of these descriptions can easily be expanded by our direct link to Wikipedia.com, the free online encyclopaedia.

The Quiz Section consists of a point and click style quiz of each of the topics, this involves direct map interaction with the mouse. The quiz is helpful and corrects the user in real time if they make an error, and shows them where they made this error. This independent learning enables the user to learn from their own mistakes and continue with the learning process in confidence.

Examine Section

In the Examine Section of Know Your Europe the user is presented with an exam of all the topics. This tests the knowledge the user has acquired so far. This section requests the user to type in the correct answer of the feature highlighted on the map. This requires the user to know the correct spelling of each feature.
