Geography is the combination of two Greek words:

  • "geo" meaning "the Earth"
  • "graphien" meaning "to write about"

Translated directly, the term means "to write about or describe the Earth".

Therefore, our study will include:

  • the physical environment and characteristics of the Earth
  • the people who inhabit the Earth and their relationship with the Earth and other groups who share the Earth
