Changes to Weekly Questions + Questions: August 15th – August 21st

Read here for updates on how Weekly Questions will be developed. Happy practicing!

We hope you had a restful summer! The Extemper’s Bible is resuming its weekly questions for this year.

First, we would like to thank all of our respondents to the feedback form we sent out in June. Based off that survey, we will make some adjustments for this year:

In USX, the first three questions each week will be political, economic, and social in some order. In IX, there will be an Asia/China/Middle East question and an Europe question each week, with the other regions rotating in accordance with world events in order to accurately cover all regions.

The first three questions in each category will be relatively easy (they will often, but not always, be yes-or-no questions). For extempers hoping to challenge themselves, the fourth and fifth questions will each be more difficult than the previous.

Due to time constraints, we will continue to write five questions in each category weekly.

If you have further comments on The Extemper’s Bible’s weekly questions, the feedback form will remain open at this link. Thank you for your support, and happy practicing!
