LATEST PART 3 – CAFÉ

  1.  Why do people go to coffee houses?

Answer: Well, as you know, there are more and more people in coffee shops now a days and there are several reasons for this. The first reason I can think of is coffee shops provide convenience on your leisure time. For instance, you don’t have to clean the house before someone comes to visit, just go to a coffee shop and enjoy with no pressure. Another reason for that is you can pass the time in a coffee shop, as long as you drink the coffee you can stay as long as you want. There are no waitresses rushing you off so that they can seat someone else. Also, the couches are comfy and the coffee is usually good. Take me as an example, I usually go to the coffee shop when meeting my friends, I won’t get bored and I can enjoy myself while waiting.

  1. 2. What are the differences between cafes and restaurants?

Answer: I have to say that, the difference between a cafe and a restaurant is usually not very distinct. First of all,  a cafe generally offers a light, casual environment, wherein you can stay outside, sip on beverages and eat lunch or snacks. Here’s an example, most coffee shop in China has cozy environment usually situated in a discreet location where people can sit, eat, drink and chat with each other. As opposed to a restaurant, it is a dining establishment that usually offers much more varied service, a formal environment, and is designed around the idea of the ‘meal’, usually dinner. Such as Taco bell, it is a famous restaurant where they serve huge meals from breakfast to dinner course.

  1. Do Chinese people like to drink coffee?

Answer: Well, I would say yes, but probably not as much as the many Westerners crowing about the ever-increasing number of Starbucks. This is for the fact that, most traditional Chinese folks prefer drinking tea as it is healthier, it cleanses our internal organs and has more health benefits than coffee. As a matter of fact, in most Chinese restaurants, they serve tea as a complimentary drink. On the other hand, there are also Chinese people who love coffee as it seems to be addictive and can make their mood better. An example for that is my father, he cannot start his day without drinking coffee because it gives him energy and positive mood whenever he drinks it.

  1. Do Chinese people like social activities?

Answer: We cannot deny that people in China love to partake in a wide range of Chinese sports, games, and leisure activities, which you can observe during a stroll in the park or at traditional festivals or competitions. The first point here is that Chinese people like to spend their free time outdoors as much as possible. For instance, parents will take their children outside. You will find Chinese parks full of people, both young and old, from dawn to dusk, engaging in various Chinese sports and leisure activities. Another point here is that Chinese people are very sociable and would rather spend time with others than alone. The activities they enjoy in their free time also usually involve some movement, keeping them more active and healthier than many of their Western counterparts. Common examples of these activities are having a family picnic, a family outing on the beach, or a club party.
