  “集中注意力”这个雅思口语话题虽然不算是新面孔,但是在口语Part 2出现,也真是难倒了很多同学。“学习工作的时候集中注意力”这么优秀的品质如果每位烤鸭都能做到,早就跟雅思分手了。大家想到的招数一般都不奏效啊!例如下载个App,种个小树苗,一碰手机你的小树苗就死掉了。或者逼自己去到网络奇差无比的图书馆,被浓重的学习氛围包围着,不学习没别的事儿可做,等等。其实不管是否奏效,咱们既然想到了就说呗,反正考官也不在乎你到底有没有“成功的专注学习”了。

  下面的素材是受到一个TED演讲启发,据说冥想可以放松休息大脑,达到提升专注力的功效哦!Again,不用管真假,跟雅思考官瞎说呗:

  The thing I do that helps me stay focused is meditation.

  I used to be the kind of person who gets distracted easily. For example, when I was working, I would be attracted by the water cooler conversation my colleagues were having. And when I was searching for some information on the Internet, a pop-up advertisement could stop me working for a while.

  I’d been having a hard time concentrating until one day, I watched a TED talk about meditation. What I remember most from the talk is, the speaker said, our brain is our most valuable resource, and yet we don't take any time out to look after it. And that really hit me. I was like, maybe that’s the reason why I couldn’t focus, I mean, I never gave my brain any rest, it’s always working. So I decided to give this meditation thing a shot, and that’s when I had this incredible, refreshing experience. Most people assume that meditation is all about stopping thoughts, getting rid of emotions, somehow controlling the mind, but actually it’s much different than that. It’s more about stepping back, seeing the thought clearly with a relaxed, focus mind. This practice is a good way to recharge and relieve stress, you know, just like our body, our brain also needs a break to get back the strength and energy.

  I do it on a daily basis, every day before I go to bed. And now I’m getting better and better at maintaining concentration.

  雅思口语语言点解析:

  meditation = the practice of thinking deeply in silence, especially for religious reasons or in order to make your mind calm例如:

  She found peace through yoga and meditation.

  He was deep in meditation and didn't see me come in.

  distracted (by somebody / something) = unable to pay attention to somebody/ something because you are worried or thinking about something else

  water cooler = used when referring to a place where office workers talk in an informal way, for example near the water cooler例如:

  It was a story they'd shared around the water cooler.

  pop-up = (of a computer menu, etc.) that can be brought to the screen quickly while you are working on another document例如:
