  1. I am glad that to see the efforts of National Geographic in addressing the growing concern of the US population lacking global literacy. One criticism I have though is, if the surveys were targeted for ages 18-24, why is the website and all of the educational materials geared towards kids/teens. Obviously that is an important group to target because they will become the next 18-24 year olds. Yet, I feel more efforts need to be made in addressing the group that was surveyed.

  2. The Smithsonian is proud to support efforts to improve geographic knowledge by joining the My Wonderful World coalition. We hope you enjoy our new website and check back often to continue your geographic exploration as we add more exciting resources to the site!

  3. Dear Sir / Madam,

    I hope that you have an office in Egypt to care about Geography and the knowledge of it.

  4. Good morning, my name is Masha. I’m interested in Russia and I would like to know more about it. I should mention, your site is very interesting and I’m really fond of being here! Thank you!

  5. Hello! When I saw and advertisement for this site, I knew I had to check it out. I’m making it my lifes pursuit to learn everything I possibly can about our amazing earth. Thanks!

  6. I am a teacher in Santiago Chile and I constantly use info found in your site for my teaching. My students are learning English, ages range between 5 and 18. Thank you, M:

  7. The site didn’t give much information. With the information there was, there wasn’t anything I was looking for.

  8. IDE LIKE THE COUNTRIES AND PLACES TO BE MORE VISUAL. I CANT REMEMBER NAMES OR PLACES AND INFORMATION ABOUT THEM UNLESS I CAN PICTURE IN MY HEAD WHERE THOSE PLACES ARE. WHEN I CLICK ON AN ARTICLE ABOUT A CERTAIN PLACE OR CULTURE, IDE LIKE TO BE ABLE TO SEE WHERE ON THE MAP THAT PLACE IS. THAT WOULD HELP ALOT.
