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:
