The country I chose is Singapore. I chose this country because of all the countries in the ring of fire I feel that it a country that most people don’t know about. I think that it would be a cool country to learn about because most people don’t know about it and you can learn lots of interesting facts. I think people should learn more about other countries to broaden their knowledge on how other people live. Because people only really remember the countries that affect them and for me personally Singapore doesn’t really affect me in my daily life. I didn’t really know much about Singapore before my research but I did know that one of their main languages is English. Also I know that it is the 5th wealthiest countries in the world.
