雅思口语part2话题卡：Describe an interesting conversation you had with your friend 描述你曾经和朋友展开的有趣的谈话
按照剑桥自己字典的解释someone or something that is interesting keeps your attention because he, she or it is unusual, exciting, or has a lot of ideas。也就是说大家在回答的时候不用把思路局限在有趣上，只要该谈话不同寻常、让人兴奋、或者能激发起人们的兴趣即可。换句话说，interesting可能翻译成“引起兴趣的”，或者“有意思的”更合适一些。这样一来，我们可说的内容就瞬间扩展了不少。
Describe an interesting conversation you had with your friend
You should say
Who you spoke with
Where you were
What the conversation was about
And explain why you think it was interesting
I am going to tell you a conversation that I conducted with my friend about genetics, a branch of biology concerned with the study of genes, genetic variation and heredity in organisms.
It was in high school. Back then Genetics constituted a large proportion of the biology lesson and was one of the most important contents in the exam. However, I just could not grasp its key points. I was familiar with every word in the textbook but was not able to figure out what they indicated. As a result, my scores always lingered around the passing mark, no matter how hard I had worked. I shared my frustration with Xiaoming, a straight-A student who often got praised by the biology teacher, hoping he could give me some useful advice.
However, instead of analyzing where my problems lied and offering corresponding solutions, he started to talk about a book he had just read, called The Gene: An Intimate History, which chronicled the history of the gene and genetic research, all the way from Aristotle to Crick and then the 21st-century scientists who mapped the human genome. It also discussed the power of genetics in determining people’s well-being and traits, and delved into the personal genetic history of a specific family.
Although what he said was not directly related to the exam, it helped me form a comprehensive picture of this area and thus solved my problem. Suddenly, all the contents I had memorized began to make sense, which contributed to the dramatic increase in my academic performance. That was why I thought this conversation interesting.
