山东省烟台第二中学 赵霞

Lead in
After a long day at work or school, what would you like to do most?
Sip a cup of coffee at a cozy cafe?
Spend time with your furry companions?
What if you could combine the two together?  

Read for main idea
Let's read the passage and find out what the perfect combination is like.
What is the main idea of the article?
It tells us that recently the combination of pets and catering has become incredibly popular in many cities throughout China. It also sheds light on why these cafes are popular and what customers get out of them.

Read for detailed information
Read the passage again and answer the following questions.
1. What are animal-themed cafes in China like?
In recent years, the combination of pets and catering has become incredibly popular in many cities throughout China. While many cafes started out offering the company of cats and dogs, others are expanding their range. Some cafes include animals like squirrels, raccoons and even capybaras.

2. What is the main reason for visiting such a cafe?
One of the main reasons is that visiting these businesses allows them to interact closely with animals they have only seen from afar.
Also, these pet cafes serve as a haven for those who find comfort in being around animals.

3. What functions can the pet cafes perform?
They may help change people’s attitudes toward pets.

4. How does the author elaborate on the functions?
By giving examples and quotes. (Tian Xuhui, a pet cafe owner; Liu Wan, a Beijing resident who works in finance, loves pigs, but  her parents would not approve of her getting one as a pet; Xiao Ou, 30, a frequent pet cafe visitor)

Read for language and grammar
  Whether at home or in stores, these little animals are there for companionship and they bring warmth to our hearts.
   Whether不管,无论,引导让步状语从句
   whether.. or... 无论是……还是……
   无论是在家里还是在商店里,这些小动物都陪伴着我们,给我们的心灵带来温暖。

Test yourself
1. _______ you believe it _____, it is true.
无论你是否相信,它都是真的。

2. Look, Kate, I’m calling the doctor, ______ you like it _______.
喂,凯特,我要打电话叫医生来,不管你愿不愿意。

Key: 1. whether … or not    2. whether … or not

Translation
In reviews, internet users have commented that one of their main reasons for visiting these businesses is to interact closely with animals they have only seen from afar.
在评论中,网民们说,他们光顾这些店的主要原因之一是为了与他们之前只能远观的动物亲密互动。

In this place, you can get close to the cute little ones in a very comfortable way without having to worry about safety and hygiene – overall, it is an extremely comfortable experience.
在这里,你可以以很舒服的方式接近这些可爱的小家伙们,完全不用担心安全和卫生问题。总的来说,这是一种非常舒适的体验。

Further thinking
Apart from what has been mentioned in the passage, are there some other functions pet cafes fulfill? What are they? How?
