I know this is like a meme, but I have this actual doubt (I am not joking), do people from U.S.A have geography as a school subject?
Yes, but Americans have a notorious habit of ignoring history classes. (Geography is usually taught by history teachers here.)
Oh I didn't know that geography is taught by history teachers in the USA.
It's not taught in all American schools. They get taught the continents but not always states or countries.
Just the major countries. As in allies/ enemies involved in war kind of importance. If you are tiny, you might not even exist... aka Portugal.
Without context, geography is an irregular shape memorizing exercise.
Pretty much. Plus most people will spend their entire lives in the usa. Not many people will regularly go outside the usa into "exotic" countries (every county besides canada and Mexico, and the Caribbean islands)
Do people from outside the US have spelling as an actual subject?
While the grammar of this post isn't perfect; the spelling is. Anyone from a non-English speaking country who can even get a modicum of legible English out is more impressive than most of our country when it comes to language skills as a whole.
Edit: Just realized you were referring to the title, not the post itself. I stand corrected. My point still stands, however.
English is the closest thing to a world language the world has. Theres not really a good motivation to learn a different language if english (the most useful one) is already your primary.
Plus I've been tested for my language learning adaptability. Let's just say the test givers were surprised that I managed to learn english as my primary in the first place. Dyslexia really doesnt help there. That being said I have the ability to learn a different language I just dont see the point to take on the mountain of learning, would be easier to take a quantum theory class.
I am sorry, English is not my first language
Yes, most schools in the us teach geography. Depending on the district it may or may not be an entire class. In some cases its lumped in with history. Also a lot of Americans are not great at history or geography. Though to be fair America has a ton of states to remember. While places like UK has like 7 isles. Also people from places like UK brag they visited so many countries but like when the next country is like an hour car drive of course you have. Most people in California have seen whashington, Texas or Nevada but that's literally the distance a country in other places might be. If you can drive for an hour and hit Ireland in the US you probably still within the same state or gone to the next state but you are still in the US.
Where are you from?
Don't get off topic.
If you were here earlier the headline read "Quention for people from the U.S.A".
Try to keep up with the rest of the class.
I assume you're referring to the heading? That's obviously a typo, not a spelling mistake
On my keyboard S and N are some distance apart. Must have been wearing mittens.
To my knowledge I never went to a school (elementary, high school or college) with a class called “geography.”
Education in the usa is very decentralized, so whether or not geography is really taught just depends on the school. As for my experience: I had to learn the states and state capitals in elementary school, but was never expected to learn world geography beyond where it was relevant to our history classes. My high school taught a world geography class as an elective though. We also had a world government class, so that's pretty cool I guess
I couldn't find the classroom
For me “geography” was the title of the course taught by a history teacher from 1st through 6th grade. 7th and 8th grade were strictly american history: the early years, the later years. Then in highschool it was just called history, taught by a history teacher.
Of course we just don't pay attention. Our s hooks research the same shit every year getting slightly more informative each time. Afyrer year 4 it's like ok nap time
It’s a class that gets swapped through the years with history.
Geography wasnt a class but there was a geography club that trained for the geography version of a spelling bee. Geography was grouped in with social studies (history). I think the number one thing that foreigners need to keep in mind about American geography is that we are so bloody massive theres not many reasons we need to travel outside the usa. A trip throughout america cant be completely done within a week.
Hell to tour all the nfl stadiums by car it would take 40 days.
In 9th grade for my final exam I had to have a unlabeled map and identify every country in the world on it and the capital. I have forgotten much of it. Idk if everyone has this though I went through one of the best school systems in my state before I quit. But I have a giant map on the wall in my workout room that I look at quite often to try to remember better.
