Question:
Dear Peter and Sue, my question is:Do mongolian chilren play sports and what kinds?
Answer: Yes, Mongolian children love sport. Wrestling is the national sport (equivalent to rugby in NZ) but they also play other sports, including soccer. The children have talked more about this on the discussion pages, so perhaps you could also look there for details.

Question:
Dear Peter and Sue, my question is:Do they have a separate alphabet in Mongolia? If so how many letters do they have?
Answer: There are two alphabets in Mongolia - the old Mongolian script and a version of the Russian cyrillic script. When Mongolia was under Russia, everyone had to change to cyrillic script, but now the government is trying to encourage people to use the Mongolian script too. The Mongolian script has 26 characters and is written downwards starting at the top left of the page. The Mongolian version of cyrillic script has 35 characters - two more than normal Russian cyrillic.

Question:
Dear Peter and Sue, my question is: What are the consequence
s when you break the law, is there a death sentence?
Answer: Mongolia has a justice system similar to the West although sentences tend to be harsher. There is a death sentence which is carried out by a firing squad but this is only implemented in very extreme cases. Mostly a life sentence is the severest sentence and it is for life. The prisons are extremely harsh places.
