Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In which of these cities are you most likely to hear the following proposal: "Vill du gifta dig med mig?"

Answer: Stockholm

The phrase is Swedish for "Will you marry me?", which should have led you to opt for Stockholm, Sweden's capital. Many Swedes become engaged without the caveat of progressing to marriage, and usually at this stage the couple will wear identical gold bands. Thus if a couple wants to take the next step to marriage, someone will likely have to ask this question! For replies, you could have "Ja, naturligtvis!" ("Yes, of course"), or a more unfortunate "Nej" ("No")!

A North Germanic language, Swedish has about 10 million speakers, and is the official language in both Sweden and Finland. Nouns in Swedish are one of two genders, either common or neutral, while verbs do not inflect for genders or numbers of person. Swedish language is called "svenska" by its speakers.
2. Which of these would be least likely to be given as a romantic gift in Warsaw?

Answer: Nietoperz

As Warsaw is Poland's capital, naturally the answers are in Polish. While "czekolada" ("chocolate"), a "bukiet" ("bouque"), or a "bransoletka" ("bracelet") would be a sweet gift for your significant other, a "nietoperz" is considerably less romantic as it is a bat!

Polish is the official language of Poland, and is an Indo-European language of the West Slavic group, with approximately 40 million speakers. Nearly all Polish citizens speak the language as a mother tongue, and there are large groups of Poles in countries such as Slovakia, Czech Republic, and the Ukraine, where Polish is a minority language. Polish has no articles ("a" and "the"), and nouns are highly inflected (i.e. change their form depending on their role in the sentence). Polish language is called "polski" by its speakers.
3. Which of these questions might be overheard in Berlin between a romantic pair?

Answer: Darf ich dich küssen?

Naturally, Berlin is Germany's capital, so these questions are in German. "Darf ich dich küssen?" means "May I kiss you?", which is considerably more romantic than the others! "Wo sind meine Schuhe?" means "Where are my shoes?", while "Muss ich meine Hausaufgaben machen?" means "Must I do my homework?", and "Hasst du mich wirklich?" means "Do you really hate me?"

As well as of Germany, German is the official language of countries including Austria, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein. It is a West-Germanic language, and has about 120 million speakers of its many dialects, which include Silesian German, Bavarian, and Colognian (or Kölsch). German nouns can be one of three grammatical genders, masculine, feminine, and neuter. The language is called "deutsch" by its speakers.
4. In Moscow, which of these is most likely to be given as a romantic gift?

Answer: Tsveti

Moscow is Russia's capital, and so the options are in Russian. "Tsveti" are flowers, while the other three are not necessarily things I'd like to receive as a romantic gift! "Uksus" is "vinegar", a "pauk" is a "spider", and a "banan" is a "banana"!

Russian is a Slavic language, and is spoken by around 270 million people worldwide. It is the official language of Russia as well as other countries, including Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan, and is a minority language in yet others, such as Moldova, Romania, and China. It uses no articles ("a" or "the"), and nouns are one of three grammatical genders, masculine, feminine, and neuter. Russian is written using the Cyrillic script, and there are various methods of transliterating this into the Latin alphabet. Russian is called "russkiy yazik" by its speakers.
5. Which of these would be heard as a romantic term of endearment in Helsinki?

Answer: Kultaseni

As Helsinki is the capital of Finland, the answers are all in Finnish, but I think you'd only like to be called one by a partner! "Kultaseni" means "sweetheart", while the others are less romantic - a "kirjasto" is a library, a "tietokone" is a computer, and a "vanki" is a prisoner.

Finnish is a Uralic language that is official both in Finland and Sweden. It has around 5-6 million native speakers. It is an agglutinative language, meaning that in inflection for tenses, prepositions etc., words usually have suffixes added to them, for example: "talo" means "house", "talossa" is "in a house" in one word, rather than adding a preposition "in". Finnish nouns have fifteen cases, many of which function in place of these prepositions. Finnish language is called "suomi" by its speakers.
6. Which of these propositions would be most romantic from a Spaniard?

Answer: Quieres casarte conmigo?

(Spanish questions begin with an inverted question mark, which has been removed from the answer fields following a technical error.) I think most people would agree that the proposal of marriage, "¿Quieres casar conmigo?", is considerably more romantic than the others, which mean "Do you want to clean the stables?" ("¿Quieres limpiar los establos?"), "Do you want to steal a car?" ("¿Quieres robar un coche?"), and "Do you want to change the baby's diaper?" ("¿Quieres cambiar el pañal del bebé?")!

The Spanish language is also called Castilian, and is spoken by about 500 million people. It is an official language of 22 countries, including Spain, Mexico, Cuba, Argentina, and Peru, as well as of the European Union and United Nations. It is a Romance language, closely related with languages such as Italian and French. Speakers call the language either "español" (in Spain and mostly South America) or "castellano" (in Spain, Mexico and mainly Central America).
7. Which of these is least likely to be given as a romantic gift in Amsterdam?

Answer: Punaise

I don't suppose anyone would be particularly thrilled to receive a "punaise", or "drawing/push pin", from their significant other! The Dutch word comes from the French, which means "bedbug" as well as "drawing pin". The other options make considerably nicer gifts: a "halsketting" is a "necklace", "rozen" are "roses", and a "gedicht" is a "poem".

Dutch is a West Germanic language, with official status in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Suriname. It is spoken by approximately 28 million speakers worldwide. Dutch is often regarded as a stepping stone between German and English - certainly in my learning, I've found that if a Dutch word is not similar to the English, generally it's similar to the German! Afrikaans, spoken in South Africa, began as a dialect of Dutch, but has since developed into a language of its own. Dutch is called "nederlands" by its speakers.
8. Which of these words would a Frenchman least likely use as a term of endearment for his partner?

Answer: Mon orteil

Perhaps "chéri" (for a woman, "chérie") and "bien-aimé" (for a woman, "bien-aimée") are more well-known than "mon sucre d'orge" as French terms of endearment. While "chéri" and "bien-aimé" mean "darling", "mon sucre d'orge" means "my barley sugar", similar to how "sugar" might be used in English as an endearing term. On the other hand, "mon orteil" means "my toe"!

France is a Romance language, with around 220 million speakers. It has official status in 29 countries, including France, Canada, and various countries of Africa such as Benin, Burkina Faso, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. There are many dialects of French spoken worldwide, such as Cambodian French, Jersey Legal French, Belgian French, and African French. The language is called "français" by its speakers.
9. In which European capital are you most likely to hear the following promise: "Ljubila te bom za vedno"?

Answer: Ljubljana

Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia, and so the phrase "Ljubila te bom za vedno" is Slovenian, and means "I will love you forever". Preferred answers are "ja" ("yes"), and "seveda!" ("of course!"), rather than a heartbreaking "no" (which of course means "no").

Slovenian, also called Slovene, is a Slavic language spoken by around 2.5 million people. It is the official language of Slovenia, and also has a regional official status in Italy, Hungary, and Austria. Depending on the source and precise definition of "dialect", Slovenian is said to have from as low as seven to as many as 50 different dialects, whose groups include the Upper and Lower Carniolan groups, and the Styrian group. Slovenian is called "slovensèina" by its speakers, which, confusingly, is very similar to the Slovak word for Slovakian ("slovenèina").
10. A worried Italian asks his loved one "Mi ami?" - "Do you love me?" Which of these answers would break his heart?

Answer: Niente affatto

The positive answers "yes" ("sì"), "of course" ("certo"), and "I will love you forever" ("Ti amerò per sempre") would definitely be preferred in answer to such a question! "Niente affatto" sadly means "not at all", and is something no one would want to hear from someone they loved.

Italian is a Romance language with official status in various countries including Italy, Switzerland, and the Vatican City. Worldwide, about 85 million people speak it. Italian is closely related with the other Romance languages, such as French and Spanish, and has retained much from Latin, including the distinction of long and short consonants.
