23.5 degrees

Why are there different Seasons on the North and South Hemispheres?
Because of the earth's tilt. The north and south hemispheres are closer to the sun at different times, thus they have different seasons at different times.

Would we still have seasons if there was no tilt of the Earth's axis?
No. If there was no tilt, the amount of sunlight hitting the world would be consistent in all areas, just making one season.

If May, June, and July are the summer months in the Northern Hemisphere, which place would be warmer in the month of July? Southern Africa or the United States? ( Oregon doesn't count)
United States! Remember, Northern and Southern hemispheres have opposite seasons, so when it is summer here, its winter over there!

When we have our winter, do we receive more direct sunlight or less direct sunlight?

If there was another planet in a different solar system with the same environment and distance away from the sun but it didn't have a tilt in its axis, would it still have four seasons?
No. The earth's tilt is mandatory in order for us to have four seasons. It makes sure that we're exposed to different amounts of direct sunlight in a year.

Yep! We are still in the Northern Hemisphere!
