REASONS TO STUDY GEOGRAPHY

Geography helps:

✵ to understand the basic physical systems that affect everyday life (e.g. earth-sun relationships, water cycles, wind and ocean currents, etc.);

✵ to understand the geography of past times and how geography has played role in the evolution of people, places and environments;

✵ to appreciate Earth as the homeland of humankind and provide insight into how the planet’s resources should be used;

✵ to understand global interdependence;

✵ to get the most out of travel experiences.

Human culture is fundamentally place-based. The land determines or influences the cuisine, clothing, architecture, even social relationships.

8. Work in small groups. Discuss the arguments from exercise 7.

Model: Oksana doesn’t understand how a person can function more effectively, if he/she knows the location of places, physical and cultural characteristics of those places. Can anybody explain that to her?
