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……

TV series: are you an addict, an expert or clueless?

 

One of the nicest ways to pass the dark winter nights is to draw the curtains, curl up on the sofa and watch your favorite TV series. With the popularity of Netflix, HBO and other on-line streaming sites the choice of series is huge.

Do you like to watch an episode a week or are you a binge watcher? Do you have to get your "fix" or do you prefer to space your viewing out over a few weeks?

Whatever your preference, TV series culture is now an essential part of our "general knowledge" necessary for everyday conversations. So don't be left behind, this quiz will help you to swot up on important plots and themes so that you can dazzle your colleagues during those workplace coffee breaks.

TV series are a great way to learn English. You hear everyday vocabulary, a wide variety of accents and enjoy great stories at the same time.

At first it might seem just far too difficult to understand what's going on, but try these tips to help you improve your listening skills.

(i) Don't expect to understand every word. Many of the actors do not speak clearly because it's part of the character they're playing. Either they mumble their words or they speak with a strong regional accent....so don't worry if you only catch half of what they are saying. 

(ii) At first watch just 15 minutes, pause the programme and make a note of what you have understood from the images and then return to the story. Keep watching out for clues which will help you to understand.

(iii) Watch the episode as many times as you like until you have a better understanding. Be like a young child watching their favorite programme again and again.

(iv) "Prepare" the vocabulary that you think will be in the story. Before you watch think which words you may hear.

(v) If you are really stuck, activate the subtitles in English for a short time.

(vi) RELAX AND ENJOY. It takes time to achieve a good level of comprehension in a new language, so .... take your time !!!
