Visiting Boston – Tourism English Exercise

Parlando di città statunitensi, Boston non è senz’altro tra le prime scelte di un turista al momento di pensare a dove andare negli States. Gli preferirà sicuramente New York, Los Angeles o le spiagge assolate di Miami, o ancora località mozzafiato come il Grand Canyon.

Boston però ha tutte le ragioni per voler essere parte di questa lista. Definita come la città “più europea” degli Stati Uniti d’America, è situata nello stato del Massachussets, sulla costa nord-orientale. È una storica città di mare degli States, tranquilla ma al contempo anche molto vivace e giovane, in quanto possiede un sacco di università.

La sua particolarità è che è a misura d’uomo – in quanto girabile tranquillamente a piedi – ed è inoltre godibilissimo perdersi attraverso i suoi vicoli. Nulla a che vedere quindi con il caos di una grande metropoli, anche se il suo Skyline è comunque imponente e di tutto rispetto.

Famosa per le sue squisite aragoste e per gli svariati eventi che vi si tengono (la Maratona annuale su tutte), i suoi abitanti sono letteralmente pazzi per i beniamini locali dei Boston Celtics – squadra che ha fatto la storia dell’NBA – e dei Boston Red Sox, famosissima squadra di baseball.

Che aspetti allora? Mettiti alla prova con i nostri esercizi per conoscere ancora di più questa straordinaria città!

Describing Countries: English Language Fill-in-the-Blank Exercise

Tourism is definitely one of the main reasons that we study English in Milan. The ability to travel and see some of the most beautiful sites in the world is a pleasure that we simply can’t pass up. As we all know too well, however, the need for English when travelling to a foreign country is a must, especially if you want to take in the culture and genuinely experience what the locals live, breath and feel for their countries.

In order to help you with your travel plans in the future, we’ve prepared an English language exercise that deals with describing countries, and today’s focus is the beautiful country of Mexico. As the United States’ neighbor, many of our Native English teachers have spent quite a lot of time in Mexico on vacation for travel, so here is a little recap of some of the details we’ve gathered from the various times spent there. Have a look at the quiz below and try to use the words from the word bank to fill in the text in a proper way:
