A Brief History of Plural Word...s

In order to change a singular noun to its plural form in English, you usually add "s": the plural of pen is pens. The plural of dog is dogs. These are regular plurals. There are many nouns which don't follow this rule. For example, the plural of fish is fish. The plural of man is men. These are irregular plurals.

Do you think you are a Geography expert?

GeoGuessr shows you a Google Street View image and you prove how expert you are by trying to guess where in the world the image was captured. 

You have to move around and then click on the map to place your marker. When you are sure, just click "Make a guess" and find out how close you were. The closer you get to the real location, the higher your score.

You can also set a time limit, challenge a friend or share your score.

An addictive way to learn about Geography.
