    Nice! Just a couple of notes, since I also made a quiz on waseigo recently. マンション and アパート are two different things. アパート is apartment, but マンション is closer to a condominium, usually a bit bigger and nicer, so I would not say マンション = apartment. Also, I was told by a JTE that Japanese people just call pancake パンケーキ, but this may be ESID.

    I've never not had a Japanese person not know what I meant when I said "pancake", so I think the English word has fully crossed over. In fact, there was a pancake cafe near where I used to work that used パンケーキ on their sign.
