A handy dictionary

Do you know the difference between Hispanic and Latino? And what about the difference between England, Great Britain, The United Kingdom and the British Isles? Or the difference between Persian and Iranian? They’re quite tricky, aren’t they? If you’re like me and get confused now and again, you must read this article (link to: www.qz.com). You’ll find that this is a handy dictionary of commonly misused and mixed-up geographical terms. I must say that I learned a lot. But I’ve probably forgotten half of what I read! So I need to read it again from time to time.
