Earth View from Google Maps

Earth View from Google Maps is a Chrome extension that will entertain and inspire. Every time you open a new tab in Chrome, a photograph will appear, from Google Maps Earth View. In the bottom right corner, it will tell you where the photo is, and if you click on the globe there, a new tab will open in Google Maps, so you can explore.

This tool can help you learn and practice English in many ways. It can help you learn geographic names in English, it can inspire you to learn more about the areas you discover, and it may even enable you to make better guesses on GeoGuessr.

It may also inspire you to learn more about Earth Day (here’s one article from VOA Learning English to get you started), climate change, and other issues related to our globe and our environment.
