If you do the following exercise correctly, you will change the name of an American president into the name of a European country. Check your method, speed and accuracy in following directions.

Write the words GEORGE WASHINGTON.
Take out all the "E"s.
Counting only the remaining letters, add an "L" after each seventh letter. Move the second "G" to the beginning and put the last letter in its place. Whenever three consonants appear together, change their order so that the first consonant in the group becomes the last, the one in the second place takes the first position, and the one in the third position becomes the middle consonant of the group. Take out the last two vowels. Where a double consonant appears, take out both letters. Beginning with the third letter from the left, interchange each two letters. Take out the last two letters. Move the last letter so it will be the first letter. Add a "D" after each fourth letter and at the beginning. Replace every "S" with an "N". Take out the middle three letters. Take out the final letter and put the first letter in its place.

You should now have the name of the European country.
