With the U.S. election just a month away, you may now consider yourself an expert on political slogans. Well, other countries have elections and slogans, too, so let’s see how smart you really are.
Moldova has a presidential election on October 30. I avoid local politics since I am a Peace Corps volunteer here, but I’ve been interested to watch the campaign. I’ve created a fun quiz so you can participate, too. Try to match the following English translations of some Moldovan campaign slogans with the billboards on which they appeared. The answers are at the bottom.
Ready? Here are the slogans from six billboards I’ve seen along my bus route:
1. Moldova has a future. The solution is coming soon.
2. I can get more for Moldova
3. Together we are stronger
4. I hear. I listen. I solve.
5. Change for Moldova
6. Moldova has a future in Romania
Here are the billboards:
Answers: 1-E, 2-C , 3-F , 4-D, 5-A, 6-B
Did you get them all right (without using Google Translate)? Nice job — you’ve made America great for slogans again … or perhaps we’re all just stronger with slogans together.
