Worlds Largest Coffee Shop

Starbucks built the largest coffee shop … ever. It is actually a roastery, gift shop, restaurant, brewery and coffee shop all rolled into one. The venue spans 2 floors and the combined space is over half the size of a football field. The massive doors, 15 feet high, give the place a cathedral like appearance.

Below is the micro-lesson. You can learn to say: “The worlds largest Starbucks”. The Chinese name for “Starbucks” is a combination of the Chinese word for “star” and an invented word “ba-ke” which sounds sort-of like “buck”.
