题卡: Describe an interesting talk or lecture 有趣的演讲
从小到大，我们听到了很多演讲。但是有了这个有趣的限制，选择的范围就大大缩小了。中国的演讲往往过于严肃和教育，不适合回答这个话题。这个时候，你可以把你的眼睛远一点。参考国外的演讲，在 ted 上寻找，或者在大学毕业典礼上看到成功人士的演讲。虽然这些讲话有自己的传达目的。但是期间会穿插各种各样的笑话，比较有意思。
Describe an interesting talk or lecture
You should say:
When you heard it
Where you heard it
What it was about
And explain why you think it was interesting

I am going to talk about an interesting lecture that I heard 3 years ago. It is still vivid in my mind. Back then I was eager to improve my English and my teacher recommended a lot of materials and websites, which might be useful. One of them is TED, a website where various people share their experience, research, and knowledge. Its motto is “ideas worth spreading”。
我想说一句我三年前听过的有趣的演讲。在我的脑海里还是很清楚的。当时我渴望提高自己的英语水平，老师给我推荐了很多有用的信息和网站。其中 TED, 是各种各样的人分享他们的经验、研究和知识的网站。它的目的是传播值得一起传播的观点。
I spent a great deal of time on it. This article is from Laokaoya website. Do not copy or repost it. Every day, I browsed through hundreds of lectures, trying to find something that aroused my interest. Then I found one lecture that ranked first at the list of the most played.
It is about how people 's attention works. Every day, our brain receives enormous information, most of which is useless. So during the process of evolution, our brain has gradually developed a filter mechanism. It rules out a lot of things unconsciously so that we can focus on a specific issue. However, the drawback of this mechanism is that it disables us from doing two things at the same time.
The interesting thing about this lecture is that the lecturer illustrates this by showing how picking pocket works. Through distracting people and making them focus on what he is saying, he takes belongings from them without being noticed. It was amazing.
