Themes of Geography: Basic Landforms

3,486 views

Published on

This is my ESL/EFL lecture presentation. It was created as an introduction to Chapter 3 (Themes of Geography) from the book College Oral Communication 1 by Marsha J. Chan. It can be used for basic English college students as well as intermediate and/or high school ESL/EFL students due to it's simplicity. It is expected that students actively participate in the lecture and give additional information and examples to further expand upon the topic of landforms.
