I had to learn all of these when I studied Spanish in high school, and I came up with all sorts of weird tricks to remember them. Fifteen years later, I only got 8/12, but the ones I did remember were because of my dumb tricks! LOL

I knew the opposites. You give me the capital, I'll give you the country.

Which gets me to thinking... Are there opposite quizzes? Country to Capital, then Capital to Country? They should be linked somehow. (Maybe in my browser)

Chile is the southernmost country in South America. (Or if you put both North America and South America together and call it the Americas, then Chile is the southernmost country in the Americas.) I like to think of Chile as a worm. Because it is long. I like long countries.

11/12 🇸🇷 Couldn't get Montevideo even though I knew it started with M. Got confused between Ecuador, Paraguay & Uruguay's capitals, but good thing they didn't have to be in order!

I remember South America's map being stamped in our notebook and we had to color it and label the countries and their capitals. The ink got smudged, causing pages to stick and stained our hands :/...
