Around the World in 180 minutes
Virtual Trip - part of the Accelerated Literacy Project

As part the Accelerated Literacy Project’s commitment to making learning stuff fun, we organised a virtual trip around the world.

Based roughly on Jules Verne’s classic Around the World in 80 Days, where Phileas Fogg makes a bet in a London Club, that he could go round the globe in 80 days, it was a great opportunity to take a look at different parts of the world today.

Here is your chance to take that virtual trip yourself and see if you can answer the quiz questions on the way.

So, hop aboard for the trip of a life time!
