В кино один подросток имел секс с американским пирогом. Значит, это можно делать и с глобусом. Теперь я понимаю, что такое "почётный член географического общества".

It's all good, so far, except geographical facts.
We do hung out with other kids, do sports, museums, whatever we feel like.
We don't fall behind, I'm careful with that.
The teacher says we're fine, we get to see her only few times a year though.

Молодец, что тут скажешь!
А уроки труда?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
У тебя спец. учительницы младших классов?

Да, когда-то давно...
Уроки труда? Не знаю пока. Мой мелкий читал рассказ про девочку-пионерку (в американском смысле - новопроходчицу, сидящую в кибитке), которая делала одеяло из лосткутков. Он вроде заинтересовался. Из некоторых мальчиков, я слышала, получаются хорошие дизайнеры.

I freaked out and ran to look at the map. Africa goes through 3 'chetveroshariya', and it's not as large continent as Eurasia or even just Asia.
I think the author of the schoolbook is an African American, so, the publisher is afraid to correct his geographical statements because it would be racist.


oh.. its because they count:
Eastern Hemisphere
Western Hemisphere
Northern Hemisphere
Southern Hemisphere

kind of dumb though... logically any sphere should have 2 hemispheres

yes, the 'hemi-' part means 'half', no?
And, Africa doesn't go through all those four parts, no matter how you divide them.

American geography sucks. No wonder 'educated' people buy into Al Gore's ridiculous 'facts'.

I guess, they are proud to be close to (british) grinvitch and equator at the same time. = make sense -
Those ones are main geo references in geography like dollars, pounds and Euros
to money's world.
I heard lately that arabs like to move grinvitch to Mecca?
if they could not move mecca to london

Re: Public school vs. homeschooling

Oh... With your division, if some of hemispheres overlap each other, it makes some sense.

I understood it as quarters: north-west, north-east, south-west, and south-east.

Live and learn.
Also I was forced to learn the difference between beat and rhythm.

So much I don't know, it's scary.
And, I don't trust the instructions.

Actually, in adult school my very first year here they told me I've earned my high school diploma. I was told to show up at my graduation ceremony.
