沒有比到一個所有人都說盈餘的地方還更容易提高你的英語水平。你不僅能有相當多的口語練習,而且您還會受到來自不同來源得真實英語電影的影響。


但是當大多數人都選擇如紐約,倫敦或雪梨等有名的城市學習英語或旅遊的得失或,其實還是有很多理由去off
the beaten track
(遠離那些受歡迎的地方)並到一些並不那麼為人所知的地方去旅遊。


Calgary

加拿大中西部的商務和文化中心城市 Calgary ,結合了經濟實力和傳統的加拿大人的熱情。60和70年代的石油工業繁榮,讓這些曾經平靜的乳牛飼養鎮幾乎一夜之間成為了摩天大樓,處處生輝的商業中心。但它仍舊保留了小城鎮上友好的氣氛。每年, Calgary在Stampede Festival節上重現牛仔的歷史,有瘋狂的野馬狂奔,馬車比賽,和懷舊的牛仔烹飪。

Wellington

包圍在美麗海岸線之中,Wellington是新西蘭的首度,同時也是活躍的社教和文化中心。儘管它尤其特有的重要性,它仍是一個相當小的城市,輕輕鬆鬆的就能在休閒的氣氛中不行在城市之中。在哪兒你可以找到最新開幕的國家博物館,以及許多餐廳,喧鬧的酒吧和夜生活區。

Santa Barbara

坐落於加州北部白色沙灘邊,Santa Barbara是一個建立在華貴的西班牙地中海風格的可愛城市。值得誇耀的陽光明媚的加利福尼亞氣候,沒有任何大城市的喧鬧,Santa Barbara的魅力,購物場所和極佳的地理位置使其成為美國的Riviera。

There's no better way to improve your English than to visit a city where everyone else is speaking it. Not only will you get plenty of conversation practice, but you'll be getting authentic English input from a huge variety of sources.



But while many people choose to study in or visit famous cities like New York, London, or Sydney, there's a lot to be said for getting off the beaten track (away from the most popular places) and traveling to some lesser-known destinations.


Calgary

The business and cultural center of Midwestern Canada, Calgary combines economic dynamism with traditional Canadian warmth. The oil boom of the 60's and 70's turned this formerly quiet cow town into a business hub of glittering skyscrapers almost overnight. But it still preserves the friendly atmosphere of a small town. Every year, Calgary reconnects with its cowboy past in the Stampede Festival, an extravaganza of bucking broncos, wagon races, and old time cowboy cooking.


Austin

Mixing the laid-back Texas attitude with the sophistication of a college town, Austin is a fascinating and lively small city. The University of Texas at Austin is one of America's most respected, and its pool of talent has fueled the city's recent economic boom. There's an abundance of restaurants, including of course some great Texas barbecue, as well as lively nightlife. With its laid back ambiance, parks and green space, Austin locals know they're living in one of America's most pleasant cities.

Wellington

Wrapped around the shores of a beautiful bay, Wellington is both New Zealand's capital and its lively social and cultural center. Despite its political importance, it's still a fairly small city, easy to walk around, with a relaxed and informal atmosphere. It is home to the country's recently opened national museum, and boasts an array of restaurants as well as a hopping bar and nightlife district.

Santa Barbara

Set along white sand beaches north of L.A., Santa Barbara is a lovely city built in elegant Spanish-Mediterranean architecture. Boasting sun-soaked Californian weather without the hassles of a big city, Santa Barbara's charm, shopping, and great location have made it the "American Riviera."

Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the ancient capital of Scotland and a historical university city. Winding streets lined with elegant old houses connect the city's universities, castles, and charming squares, while cobblestone alleys branch off into quiet neighborhoods. And if you're looking for locals, you can find them in the many bars, bookshops, and cafes that the city offers.
