Practice English grammar and vocabulary by learning about cities from around the world. Here's a description of Newcastle, England. Read it and choose the right word for each blank space :) Good luck!


Newcastle upon Tyne is a big port city (located/locale) in the north-eastern part of England. Like many other big cities in the United Kingdom, Newcastle (used/was) to be an important industrial centre, with an (special/especially) strong shipbuilding industry. Many of the traditional industries associated with the city have since declined, and the thing that the city is most famous for now is its (nightlife/night-living). The high number (and quality) of pubs, bars and nightclubs, as well as a good (variant/variety) of restaurants, put Newcastle high on many critics' nightlife (destinies/destinations) lists. The city centre has a lot of good examples of neoclassical style architecture, referred to as "Tyneside Classical", which was (large/largely) developed in the 1830s. The city is (also/too) famous for its beer (Newcastle Brown Ale), its bridges across the river Tyne (especially the Tyne Bridge), the world's most popular half marathon, called the "Great North Run", and the strong (region/regional) dialect of its inhabitants, who are (penned/nicknamed) "Geordies".
