We live in a global village so knowing how countries are positioned relative to each other is very useful. How many times have you wondered where exactly is Bulgaria or which countries border Ethoipia? Yes, you can go online and find out that way but practising these maps will fix the world in your mind far more effectively. It is not only really useful but good fun too.

Always draw these maps in exactly the same way each time to fix the shape in your memory.
