Vocabulary notes (text only) explain key vocabulary and phrases from the interview.

like

[What is Vienna like?] I like Vienna.

If you ask what something is 'like' you are looking for a description. Notice the following:

  1. The streets are like a circus.
  2. It isn't at all like back home.

move around

I like working as an English teacher in Vienna because I get to move around every week.

When you 'move around' you change from one location to another. Notice the following:

  1. Children learn best when they have the opportunity to move around the classroom.
  2. They are moving our offices around at work.

get around

It's very easy to get around in Vienna.

'Getting around' is transporting yourself from one place to another, maybe by walking, driving or taking public transport. Notice the following:

  1. Most of the time I can get around by walking.
  2. A bicycle helps me get around more quickly.

historical

Vienna is a historical city; it has a lot of museums and art galleries.

A 'historical' place has a lot of old buildings or locations that were important in the past.  Maybe famous events happened there or there is a cultural significance. Notice the following:

  1. This is a very important historical site because it is the oldest building in the country.
  2. There is a great historical center downtown.

into

Austrian food is heavy because they are very much into meats and sausages.

If you are 'into' something you enjoy it. Notice the following:

  1. My parents got me into swimming when I was really young.
