  【学英语】他今年37岁,这是他故事开始的地方。1997年6月26日《哈利•波特》系列的第一本书,《哈利•波特与魔法石》正式出版,今年《哈利•波特》系列正好满20岁,书中1980年出生的“小哈利”也已经37岁。

  最近几天,世界各地的哈迷们纷纷在社交媒体上发文纪念哈利•波特诞生20周年,至今,《哈利波特》系列的七本书被翻译成79种文字在200个国家出版,在全世界的销量超过4.5亿册。

  20年过去了, 哈利•波特陪伴了我们一起成长,J.K·罗琳也成为了当今最红的女作家之一,今天我们就跟随罗琳的脚步,一起去看看这个梦开始的地方

  在苏格兰的爱丁堡有一家咖啡馆,在上世纪90年代的时候一直是默默无闻,那时时常有一个年轻的母亲,推着一辆婴儿车光顾这家咖啡馆,尽管婴儿时而尖厉的哭声会打破这里惯有的幽静,尽管她只是极少买上几杯咖啡,但她从来没有遭到白眼、嘲笑和驱逐,在这样的环境下,一部历时5年的小说完成了,这位年轻的母亲就是J.K·罗琳,这个不起眼的咖啡馆就是the Elephant House。

  现在罗琳居住的爱丁堡小镇已失去了往日的宁静,成千上万的哈利·波特迷和罗琳的粉丝们前来寻找她生活的痕迹,那个有着一颗博大的包容心的咖啡馆,也成为了闻名世界的旅游景点

  随着时代的变化,现在坐在咖啡厅里一边看书一边喝着咖啡,已然变成了资深文艺青年的tag之一,在雅思考试中也经常会出现,关于#咖啡馆#的话题,作为这么具有话题性的咖啡馆,大家也可以灵活运用到雅思口语中噢

  Sample Answer

  Well the café that I'd like to talk about is one called the Elephant House in Edinburgh. This is the cafe where the idea of Harry Potter was born.

  Unlike other coffee shops we normally go, the Elephant House Café is a great spot to hang out, with a slight countryside feel, and is popular with fans from across the world to leave a note on the walls.

  The atmosphere here is extremely tranquil and serene, which greatly live up to my expectation. As a person with heavy amounts of daily workload, the café gives me a certain degree of peacefulness and calmness.

  What leaves the most profound impression on me is that this coffee shop was bustling, but we were able to get a table pretty quickly. They had a full menu as well as a coffee-tea-hot chocolate plus dessert menu. As we were there between meals, we shared a piece of very creamy cheesecake and a salted caramel brownie. In the bathroom, the walls are covered with graffiti either praising Rowling or other fandom sayings.

  Overall, the Elephant House café is a fantastic place to stop for a snake and definately worth a visit.
