美国城市-迈阿密

  Miami (U.S.)

  It used to be called ‘God's Waiting Room'. And even today, if you mention Miami to someone who hasn't been here or read about it lately, they might conjure up(回忆)a blurry memory of octogenarians(八十多岁)mingling poolside(游泳池边)while Aunt Sadie implored them to wait half an hour after eating before going into the water. Today the old folks mingle with fashion designers, bikini(比基尼泳装)models, and a city that once had the highest murder rate in the US attracts more than 11 million tourists a year.

  The Greater Miami Area, which includes Miami and Miami Beach as well as distinctive neighborhoods like Little Havana and Little Haiti, is a melting pot that America's founding fathers would be proud of. Half of Miami's population is Hispanic(美籍西班牙人), and its immigrant communities focus on what's happening in Havana or Caracas(加拉加斯,委内瑞拉首都)as much as they follow events in Washington DC, giving the city an international outlook. For the casual visitor this means a city peppered with the flavors of Latin American food, language, music, politics and spirit.

  Miami is the most populated city in Florida. It sits at the southeastern tip of the Florida, the most southeastern state of the United States, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Gulf of Mexico to the west and the neighboring states of Alabama and Georgia to the north.

  Most visitors aren't here for Miami itself, but rather to visit Miami Beach, an entirely separate municipality. Miami is on the mainland, while the city of Miami Beach is on a thin barrier island about 4 miles east, across Biscayne Bay(比斯坎湾) - locals call it the Billion Dollar Sandbar(十亿美元的沙坝)。 Many of the beach's locals are imports from New York, people tired of sitting through five hours of snarled traffic on their way to the Hamptons, who decided that Miami Beach made a lot more sense. They brought with them a fledgling art and culture crowd whose numbers included many younger artists.

  The boundaries of ‘season' in Miami - which used to be limited to winter - have been blurred by the huge number of people moving to the area and the stampede(蜂拥)of fashion and film shoots. But the most popular time to come here is still between December and May, when temperatures average between 16-30°C, and average rainfall is a scant couple of inches.

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。
