This site is prepared for the young geologists to whom English is a second or a foreign language. They can study geology and get familiar with English in this site. The curriculum is composed of introduction to earth science and geology, geologic map, rock classification, microscope observation, resource geology and environment geology. Though arrangement of these chapters is scheme of classical physical geology, new concept and skill such as geographical information system, remote sensing and deserts are also included.
