Region Details1). Benefits of Accessing the Regions thru the List
You can click the desired region on the list to directly open that region page.
Visited Link / Unvisited Link
Link coloring allows you to easily keep track of what you have studied and what is waiting to be studied!
The above "Regions of Europe" image shows that the last five regions are still waiting to be studied, while the first four European regions have at least been looked at.
NOTE: to get maximum utilization of the colored links for tracking your progress, you may need to be familiar with how to clear your browser's browsing data.
1a). Chrome Browser how-to
For those who use the Google Chrome browser "Clear Browsing Data..." is found on the drop-down menu found under "Chrome" :
Time Range found on the popup form can be used effectively depending on your needs:
For instance, say you explored Worldguru Academy in the distant past and now you find the majority of the region links are shown as visited, but you would like a clean slate. If the time range is set to "Last hour" the visited links will not revert back to unvisited. You may have to select "all time":
2). How to Get the Most out of the Regional Pages
Follow the route!
Focus on only one region at a time!
Throughly Master the current region before moving on!
Learn to pronounce each country and capital correctly!
Each of the 41 Regional Pages has a "Pronunciation" link in the center of the horizontal menu.
The "Pronunciation" link opens Google Translate in a new window with each capital and country of the region listed.
Click the speaker icon below the list to hear Google Translate pronounce each capital, country pair.
Simply close the new window when you are done to return to the Region Page.
The Quizzes are your friend!
Countryfill in the blank
You are provided with the capital and are to fill in the blank with the Country
Capitalfill in the blank
You are provided with the country and are to fill in the blank with the Capital
This is added as a bonus for those interested in learning flags.
It can be overwhelming attempting to learn the flags along with the countries and capitals, so it is often better to save flags for later.
The Flag Quiz shows the country's flag and you are to fill in the blank with the Country.
Note: the quizzes provide excellent feedback when you miss an answer making it easy to see where you erred. So, don't be afraid of making a mistake. But, you should do a region's quizzes until you can do them flawlessly and only then move on to the next region along the route.
3). Effective Method for Learning Sovereign Countries and their Capitals
The novel "Route Method" Worldguru Academy uses is part of the secret that makes it so effective for learning all the World's sovereign countries and capitals.
The other part that makes Worldguru Academy effective is the division of the route into small, memorable regions! A few examples:
All the sovereign countries that end in the "stan" suffix.
These are a small handful of super small nation states.
They are so small that one of the micro countries is wholly contained within the confines of another nation's capital city.
On an interesting note: This is the only location where Worldguru Academy's "Route thru the World" crosses itself! The route may pass close to itself at several places with with the closest being where it exits and enters the Mediterranean Sea through the Strait of Gibraltar.
While learning the whole world can seem quite daunting, region sizes are kept small on purpose making the learning of any given region easy.
There are only 4 regions with the maximum of 7 countries, and only 3 regions with the minimum of 2 countries. All the rest are somewhere in-between 7 & 2.
Learn just one region at a time, and before you know it you will know them all!
