There are various models. The French commonly refer to the five continents: Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, and America (merging of both north and south). In that model, Antartica is ignored as it is desert. Other counts are sometimes used when Antartica is considered, when Asia and Europe are merged in wider ensemble called Eurasia, or by distinguishing between North and South America.
