US CITIES: Vocabulary builder for ESL students: AUSTIN, TX

Here's a new way to learn and practice English: We've developed a series of exercises based on descriptions of some of the most famous American cities. Here's a description of Austin, TX. Read it and choose the right word for each blank space :) Good luck!


Austin is the capital of the state of Texas. It's population is (compared/comprised) of a mix of university professors, students, (politics/politicians), musicians, state employees, high- (technology/tech) workers, and blue collar workers. The hi-tech industry has been very popular here for the past 20 years and the city is home to enough (major/main) technology corporations to have earned the (petname/nickname) "Silicon Hills." Music (especially live music) is very important in this city. Austin's official (statement/slogan) is "The Live Music Capital of the World," and the city (offers/gives) more live music clubs per (capita/capital) than most other cities in the United States. The University of Texas is located here, so the city has a large student population. Overall, it is a (fair/fairly) casual, likeable place with its own special (ambiance/climate). Most people in Austin don't speak with southern accents.
