i'm from Canada, and no, not really. i mean, if i sat down and tried to remember all the states, i bet i could get most of them.

I can name most of the states of america and know a far bit of yank history mainly because i'm a history undergrad and i have to. Canada i know it's cold and full of beer swilling hockey nuts who hate the french and have french living there who hate the other canadians.

Really though in british schools what we learn about america is that it's a fat, cultureless land, full of idiots who rebelled from britain because they were fat and that they piss people off because they want to rule the world.
#13
I'm from Canada. In geography (grade 9), We learned the 13 or so states that border us. But seeing as I'm a smart cookie, I could easily name all fifty states. Maybe in world history and geography in grade 11 they learn, but I'm not to sure.
#14
It all depends entirely on whether you chose to study history and what courses your school offers/you choose. We did American Civil Rights as one of our topics when I was 17. If it doesn't come up like that then it'll just be down to general knowledge.

BUt in all seriousness, I wish we learned more about the UK and britain. In my school, the years alternate between learning the state names, and about the american revolution

I only have a vague knowledge of US history. I could probably write down all the US state names but not recite them (I'd lose count and start repeating some etc).

But I have little knowledge of Canada apart from that they don't like referential bids for contract offers.

But I've learnt none of this in school, just through my own reading etc.

And no, we don't actually get taught US history and the names of the states... And we don't really learn anything about Britain. Everything we know is pretty much from TV.

We try to keep the States out of Canadian schooling because they're just such a huge superpower as it is and Canadian culture is pretty weak compared to it. If we focused on the states here in Canada, there would be no more Canadian culture left at all.

myth#1-Not all Canadians give a **** about the French; I don't care if they stay or go

myth#2-Not all Canadians drink beer; I like Rum

and it's true, I bet I could sit back and recite 45+ states and most of their capitals without investing too much time, I also know a great deal about GB, I think a good cardinal rule for education regarding foreign countries is: If your nation is less influential than another, you'll learn about it, if you live in the US, it's up to you to learn about other nations.

Canada is the best Place ever, I'm proud to live here, I'm proud the queen is still on our goofy colored money(which is kicking the US dollar's ass right now), I'm proud more people want to live here more than any other country, and I'm proud we still have our English roots.

I can honestly only name like 10 states in America.

New York, Flordia, California, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Texas, Alaska, and um... um...

Yea, I haven't learned anything about America. I've studied Britain, though.

i live in canada, but i know pretty much all the states and the history of the eastern states, its standard in grade 10 history, and ive got american blood anyways so its important to me...i do know that britain is rainy, and its full of tea-swilling preps who like intimate, all-male breakfast social orgies who think they're better than everybody but really they just have bad teeth

In my Geography class we had to name all the Canadian Provinces/territories and their capitols... I barely passed that quiz
