The Bone Crushing Game of Thrones Quiz

The Bone Crushing Game of Thrones Quiz; everything you need to know to watch the series in English !

The final season of the hit series Games of Thrones will be aired on April 14. Fans all over the world are waiting in anticipation for this global event. Indeed on average each episode regularly attracts over 30 millions viewers !

The best way to watch any series is in English.  Even if it is a challenge, you get so much more out of the series when watching in the original version. For example, do you know the different accents of the characters in GOT ? They really do add to the characterization. In the series many words have been invented to describe the different roles, jobs and attitudes.  Also to be authentic the actors had to learn several fictitious languages to differentiate the many different tribes and groups. You get all of this if you watch in English !

The award winning series has become known for its complicated story lines with a huge cast of 553 cast members in 67 episodes!  The series is also known for the gruesome bloody scenes, it is certainly not for the faint hearted !

SO BE WARNED….. this quiz also is full of blood and gore !

So, how is it possible to have a mere 25 questions for such a huge series ? Of course, it cannot cover all the story lines so it is designed to help English learners understand the vocabulary and grammar that you see in the episodes (strangulation, poison, bone crushing ……). 

If you are new to GOT you may not know this: the TV series is an adaptation of a trilogy of novels called  A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. Both the novels and the TV series are set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos where noble dynasties fight, plot and scheme for the right to ascend to the Iron Throne. To add to the complication of political intrigue there is a dangerous exterior threat to the entire realm (“Winter is Coming”) from fierce creatures that lie far north of The Wall. 

SPOILER ALERT – SPOILER ALERT – SPOILER ALERT – SPOILER ALERT –

This quiz covers action from season 1 to season 7, so if you are new to GOT you may not want to start the quiz just yet……

The Aviation Top Gun Quiz

People who love planes are celebrating an aviation landmark this year with the 50th anniversary of the maiden flight of the supersonic plane Concorde.

 Back in March1969 Concorde took to the skies for the first time for a 29 minute flight at a speed not exceeding 480 km/h, it was able to break the sound barrier in October of the same year.

This achievement was the highlight of a long journey from the first flight recorded in 1903 by the Wright Brothers. 

Since early Greek mythology and the story of Icarus humans have always been enchanted by the idea of flight. The modern age of aviation began with the first hot air balloon designed by the Montgolfier brothers in 1783. Experiments with gliders provided the groundwork for heavier-than-air craft, and by the early-20th century, advances in engine technology and aerodynamics made controlled, powered flight possible for the first time. The modern airplane with its characteristic tail was established by 1909 and from then on the history of aircraft became tied to the development of more and more powerful engines.

So, if you think you are an Aviation Ace this quiz will test your knowledge of aviation developments and landmarks.

If you prefer to be a passenger, this quiz will test your knowledge and vocabulary of air transport.

But if you just want to have fun and learn some quirky facts, this is also the quiz for you !

When you get to the end of the quiz there is a real treat for all plane lovers.
