Europe, Asia, South and North America, Africa,
Antarctica and Oceania (Australia). The world has
approximately 7 billion inhabitants. Most people live in
China and India (together 2 billion). The largest country is
Russia and the smallest Vatican City. There are also the 3
oceans. The Atlantic, the Pacific and the Indian Ocean. Of
course there are also side seas such as the Mediterranean,
the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. The highest mountain in
the world above sea level is Mount Everest in the Himalayas
in Nepal at almost 9000m. Strictly speaking, Mouna Kea is
the highest mountain in Hawaii, but it is 6000m in water and
only 4000m above sea level.
Now I explain something about
the individual continents:
Europe is the 2nd smallest continent. Europe also has a
great diversity. That means there are many different things.
From big cities to high mountains or forests. Europe has
about 50 countries and over 742 million inhabitants. The
largest countries are: Russia, Spain, Germany, France and
Sweden, most residents have Russia (145 million) and Germany
(82 million). Europe borders Asia, the Baltic Sea, the North
Sea, the Mediterranean and the Pacific.
Asia is the largest continent. Like Europe, Asia is very
diverse. The Trans-Siberian Railway, the longest train route
in the world, is special there. Asia has 47 countries and
approximately 4 billion inhabitants. The largest countries
are: Russia, China, India and Mongolia, most of the
inhabitants have China (approx. 1 billion) and India (also
approx. 1 billion). Asia borders Europe, Africa, the Pacific
and the Indian Ocean.
In case you wonder why Russia is the largest country in
Europe and Asia: Russia is half in Asia and half in Europe.
Africa is the 2nd largest continent. There is a lot of
desert in Africa, not like Europe or Asia. According to Countryaah.com, Africa has 54
countries and approximately 1.1 billion inhabitants. The
largest countries are South Africa and Morocco, most of the
inhabitants have South Africa. Africa borders Asia with the
Atlantic and the Pacific.
Oceania is the smallest continent on earth. It has 7500
islands, large and small. In addition, approximately 16.5
million people live there. Most in Australia. Australia is
also the largest country/island in Oceania. Oceania
borders the Indian Ocean and the Pacific.
Many people say "Australia" to Oceania, but that's not
true, because with Australia you mean the country and not
North America is the 3rd largest continent. There are 23
countries and approximately 530 million inhabitants. The
largest countries are Canada and the United States. The
United States also has the largest population (over 150
million). North America, like Europe, is very diverse. From
large hot deserts in the south of the USA to ice landscapes
north of Canada (Greenland). North America borders the
Pacific, the Atlantic and South America.
South America is the 4th largest continent in our wide
world. There are 12 countries there and about 4 billion
people live there. Brazil and Argentina are the largest
countries and have the most inhabitants. It is often very
warm in South America, but there is also a large rainforest
there. South America borders the Atlantic, the Pacific and
The Antarctic is a very large ice landscape like the
Arctic in the north. Many penguins live in the Antarctic,
but no polar bears live in the Arctic. It is the 5th largest
continent. Funny thing is that the Antarctic/South Pole is
colder than the Arctic/North Pole. There are cold minus
degrees there. The people who live there are called Inuits.
