The Christian Science Monitor published a quiz to determine whether you have the level of multicultural understanding to avoid funny/awkward situations while traveling the world. Find out if you’ve got the right stuff! No matter how you do on the quiz, you can learn some good tips for your future globetrotting.

(Oh, and what they don’t mention in the introduction to the quiz is that one of the most effective ways to learn lifelong lessons about other people’s cultures is to make mistakes: you’ll never forget that look on a Chinese person’s face when you snap up her business card and shove it in your pocket after a cursory glance, and you’ll never do that again!)
