  中国很多城市都有著名的街,例如北京的南锣鼓巷,成都的宽窄巷子,苏州的平江路……古色古香的建筑,虽然已经商业化,不过照样可以吸引很多游人。雅思口语题目里面的street market,其实就可以从这些特色的街下手。如果你是吃货,当然还可以说说台湾的夜市。今天我们分享的,是厦门的曾厝垵,相信文艺小青年一定去过。

  This topic reminds me of the time I went shopping in a well-known street market in Xiamen, which is a coastal city in the south of China. That place is warm and pleasant all year round, so it’s a popular tourist spot in my country.

  I went there with my parents about 4 months ago. We visited that street market at night ‘cause during daytime, it’s just a regular street, nothing special, but it would start to come alive after dark.

  The name of the street left a deep impression on me, ‘cause it’s really hard to pronounce. It was Zeng Cuo An, if I remember right.

  Anyway, the street features a variety of snacks from all over the country. And on both sides of the street, there are bookstores and gift shops selling souvenirs, like bookmarks, cell phone cases, key chains and things like that.

  It’s a paradise for us, ‘cause my parents and I are all foodies. We ate stinky tofu, grilled fish and stuff. And we found a stand that is really hot in social media. It sells ice cream that could smoke.

  The street was packed with people, tourists from all over the country went there to have fun and taste those mouth-watering snacks.

  It was quite a memorable night.

  语言点解析:

  The fishing villages come alive in spring.

  anyway = used when changing the subject of a conversation, ending the conversation or returning to a subject例如:

  Anyway, let's forget about that for the moment.

  Anyway, I'd better go now—I'll see you tomorrow.

  feature = to include a particular person or thing as a special feature例如:

  The film features Cary Grant as a professor.

  The latest model features alloy wheels and an electronic alarm.

  Many of the hotels featured in the brochure offer special deals for weekend breaks.

  paradise = a perfect place for a particular activity or kind of person例如:

  The area is a birdwatcher's paradise.

  foodie = (informal) a person who is very interested in cooking and eating different kinds of food

  stand = a table or a vertical structure that goods are sold from, especially in the street or at a market例如:

  a hamburger/ newspaper stand
