About This Quiz

There's more to your words than what you are trying to say! In fact, we think that seeing the words you prefer to use most will tell us where you are from. Whether you are from Japan or the United States, the words you use are secretly hiding the place you call home. All you have to do is tell us which words come out of your mouth most often.

Although you might not currently live in the country you're from, you have certainly picked up a few words from your birthplace. Either through family or life, you've learned to express yourself in ways that are in line with your culture. With vocabularies being one of the biggest indicators of intelligence, we will learn a lot about you by the words you choose. 

When you read our questions, take a moment to listen to the word choice that pops into your mind. Then, choose the word closest to the word you were thinking. By the time we're done, we'll know more about you than your next door neighbor. Most importantly, we'll know where in the world you are from! Do you think we'll get it right, or will we need a geography lesson?
