Welcome to this course on the geography of the world! Hopefully, this course will successfully balance useful geographical information with the learner's abilities to take in the work. The course is modeled after other courses on this wiki, such as Spanish 1 and Lua, and while geography is often considered to be an easy subject, this course hopes to prove that, when done with detail, geography can be more advanced than a student would expect. This Geography course provides some capital cities to know but focuses on physical geography. This course does not discuss economics or demographics.

Directions edit

Read until you come to a quiz. Quizzes will be designed in such a way that the content between each quiz will not be too much to read. However, if you would prefer to read two sections at a time, feel free to do so.

General links and information about geography can be found at the school of geography and the geography portal.
