there are so many models of continents, depends where you have been taught your geography, extract:
The 7-continent model is usually taught in Western Europe, Northern Europe, Central Europe, Southeastern Europe, China and most English-speaking countries. The 6-continent combined-Eurasia model is preferred by the geographic community, Russia, Eastern Europe, and Japan. The 6-continent combined-America model is taught in Latin America, the Iberian Peninsula, Italy, Iran and some other parts of Europe; this model may be taught to include only the 5 inhabited continents (excluding Antarctica).
Oceania or Australasia may be used in place of Australia. For example, the Atlas of Canada names Oceania, as does the model taught in Latin America and Iberia. Australia can also be classed as the world's largest island rather than as a continent.

Also, I never got how Asia/europe were considered different continents, they're on the same land mass, as is Africa technically, although they did seperate from the continent via a man made trench to allow easier shipping routes to Britain from memory.
