Most maps don't do Africa justice. Africa is huge. Duo

I blame Mercator!

Eastern Europe looks suspiciously like Argentina in this map. Has anyone ever seen them together?

Belgium and the Netherlands look very much like Great Britain. It's all a conspiracy!

Sed Azio ne estas kontinento!

Depending on which country one grows up in, there are between four and seven continents, and Asia is a continent for people who grew up speaking Engish in the United Kingdom, the US, Australia, etc, but also people from China, India, Pakistan, the Philippines, and parts of Western Europe.

Eble Azio estas parto de Eŭrazio kune kun Eŭropo?

So, Africa is not considered Old World?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KennyImam

Africa is a continent, just like Europe (Euxropo, not Euxropio). So the old/new world system doesn't apply here.

Why is it "Afriko" and not "Afrikio" ? What is the word for "African people" then ?
