The two cross-cultural reports in this quiz build vocabulary and knowledge of the structure and language features of reports. Each report begins with a vocabulary check activity and then the multiple choice quiz. Questions are shuffled each time the learner attempts the quiz. The questions ask learners to choose the correct vocabulary to complete a sentence and to check their comprehension of the text. Overall, there are 28 questions in the quiz.
1.The Milestones Birthday report gives information about what the coming of age and milestone birthdays are in different countries. It has 12 multiple choice questions.
2.The New Year Celebrations report describes New Year Celebrations in English-speaking countries, Latin-American countries and Asian countries including Chinese New Year. It has 14 multiple choice questions.
This quiz is a nice follow up from the Celebrations Vocabulary and Gift Giving quizzes or as a stand alone quiz.

ABOUT THE QUIZ
This quiz was created using Adobe Captivate. There are three file choices: as an .htm file, an Adobe Acrobat Document or as a Shockwave File Object. I recommend using the .htm file. It can be viewed in Google Chrome, IE or Firefox. If you use the other files then you need the latest and up to date Adobe Acrobat Reader and Flash Player to view the interactive quiz. If you choose the latter files then it is possible to view it with a swiff player. General features of the quiz are:
• Choices are automatically marked
• Overall results are displayed at the end
• Responses can be reviewed at the end.
• 1 point allocated for each correct answer
• 80% or more of total points is a total pass
• answers reviewed at end.
The quiz can be displayed as a projection for a whole class activity or it could be uploaded online for individual student use. It is also possible to print the text and questions.
