Nashville (US)

A view from the balcony at the new Grand Ole Opry

  Admit it - as LA is to long-haired rockers and Chicago is to steamy blues - when you think Nashville, you've got country music on your mind. And why not? As the self-proclaimed 'Country Music Capital of the World,' Nashville revels in its down-home glamour. Banners and billboards announce new recording stars and releases like accolades (称赞;盛赞)in a high school yearbook, and streets bear the names of country legends like Roy Acuff and Chet Atkins. Music City (as Nashville's promoters like to call it) has even caught the attention of non-country singers - from Joan Baez to Jello Biafra - though their reviews have not always been favorable. Still, for a city that's staked(本意为把…押下打赌,拿……冒险) it's reputation on its trademark sound, there's no doubt about it - Nashville's tune is catchy.

  Straddling the Cumberland River in northern central Tennessee, Nashville lies midway between the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. From the state capitol - the city's highest point - a busy, compact downtown of narrow one-way streets and high-rise office buildings slopes eastward to Broadway, Nashville's central artery. Southeast of the capitol along 2nd Ave and Broadway, the renovation of historic commercial buildings has carved a downtown tourist destination called 'the District.' Music Row, the other main commercial district, is less than a mile southwest of downtown.

Record shop named after the famous country singer

  In the rest of sprawling Nashville, it's hard to pinpoint(准确地确定)what constitutes a neighborhood, but a few are easily discernible(可识别的)。 Elliston Place is a compact stretch of bohemian alternative culture about a mile west of downtown and north of West End Ave. South of this is the Vanderbilt University campus. East of Elliston Place and abutting(邻接;毗连) the university, Centennial Park is the site of the mock(仿制品)Parthenon leftover from the Centennial Exposition of 1897. This whole area is known as West End, and it centers on a cluster of restaurants along Broadway and West End Ave on either side of the university; you might also hear it referred to as 'Around Vanderbilt.'

  Many tourists never set foot in downtown Nashville, confining their visit to the massive Opryland complex a few miles northeast of town. Here, the prefabricated(预先制造;预先构思) Music Valley boasts budget motels, franchise restaurants and outlet stores.

今年过年全家去欧洲旅游,自助游的方式时间充裕些,但是语言交流是个问题。虽然我上学时也学过英语,但是旅游类的词汇还是不足。外语教育网的旅游英语课程时间短,有针对性,对我很有帮助。在此,祝愿外语教育网全体老师节日快乐!

英语口语是我的一大软助,我不是不想学好英语,可总是找不到窍门!到外语教育网学习,是姐姐的提议。因为她自己也学过,并且自我感觉有所进步。在网校上了“精英外教口语”,我觉得很自由很舒心,重拾了对英语的兴趣!我一定要坚持下去,还要感谢外语教育网的小编们每天更新信息。
