I don't. As I said, I can't name half the countries in Europe.

I WOULD say that you have poor google-ing skills.

We were told about America and it's history, we had to name all the states and we had to learn all our own and africas too. For some reason we just didn't care about Asia.

But America is one of the countries/continents we've learned most about.

That's odd, Vigil, because as part of our education system, we have to learn about your country, and Europe in general.

I actually don't know much about American geography. I could probably name the 50 states if pressed, but if handed a map and told to label them, well, I'd mix a few up, and dear Lord knows, I can't name all 50 state capitals.

Conversely, I can name most of the countries in Europe and their capitals, as well as many countries in Asia, South America, and even a handful in Africa.

Yeah, I can't label all of the states, and to be honest, I'm in 10th grade, and we've NEVER talked about European geography. NEVER! The teacher took us through the entire Vietnam war without ever taking out a map and showing us Vietnam.

The only reason I even know all of the states' names is this:



After 9/11, they started playing "patriotic songs" every day after the morning announcements. This was one of them.

In 10th grade, we did World History, which I rather enjoyed. In 11th grade, we did American History, which was quite boring for me. In 12th grade, we did Government, which was also boring. I suppose I must admit that most of my world geographic knowledge is more self interest than schooling, but we did learn about Europe and whatnot.

I too find it odd, as both our countries work together and have a shared history, but for some reason, I wasn't taught about it.

I looked at that map a few times, and I could only put a few of them in the right place, mainly because I've been there.

I know most of Europe however, because I was taught that repeatedly over the years, as well as a bit of Asia, South America and Africa.
