Overview

Google Earth allows users to explore the Earth's surface, view 3D terrain, and access various layers of information, including geographical features, landmarks, and user-contributed content. In the language class, teachers can use Google Earth to create immersive cultural lessons, enabling students to virtually visit foreign countries, explore landmarks, and practise language skills through real-world context and interactive experiences.
