Attempt these 12 questions on news items in Belgium in 2020 and see if you can score 12 out of 12!
You may be thinking that 2020 is a year to forget. You may be ready to scrape the remnants of 2020 into your waste bin and put it out for the garbage truck to pick up, so that you never have to think of this terrible year again. However, before you do, why don’t you give yourself a final chance to recall some of the newsworthy items from the past year? Although COVID-19 has dominated our minds and therefore the news media, a lot of other stuff happened! All 12 questions relate to news in Belgium over the last twelve months. (At least this means you won’t be reminded of Trump and Brexit).
I hope you enjoy the quiz. Let me know how you get on, and feel free to share the quiz and/or your results on social media. Have you already done the other quizzes on Discovering Belgium?

Considering I guessed all the answers a score of 6 is acceptable, I think. I really wanted the word of the year to be Covidiot. There’s been a lot of them around this year. I’m looking forward to sharing the beer quiz with Mr ET. 🙂
But you’ll now be able to impress your Australian friends with your in depth knowledge of Belgium!
I’ll have to steer the conversation in the right direction. 🙂
Quickly redo it and say that was your first time! ?
That’s worryingly tempting 😉
Pretty good Stefan! ?
Great quiz – got 9/10.
Well done Marion!
My knowledge of Begium is negligible. Might have done better if it were a UK quiz. Maybe next year.
Thanks for attempting it Pat.
Terrible. I did much better on the WWI quiz. This one… I am not going to report my results, they shall not pass. But good job constructing the quiz!
Well if I didn’t know the answers I would have struggled too Robert! I hope you have a good year and a healthy one.
Impeccable logic. Best wishes to you, Denzil, for the new year.
7 – not bad since I guessed most of them, but an interesting way to learn more facts about Belgium.
Thanks Andrea. I wish you a pleasant, healthy and safe 2021
Total guesswork got me 6. Pitiful!

I think it is Tonio. On Twitter someone got 15. But 10 is pretty good as I made it challenging.
