Describe a time you needed to use your imagination
You should say
When it was
Why you needed to use imagination How difficult or easy it was
And explain how you felt about it
In my life, I often come across situations where I need to use my imagination. Today, I’d like to share a story about when I had to use my imagination while traveling.
In the summer two years ago, I traveled to Italy where most people didn’t speak English well, so I had a hard time communicating with them. One day I went to an Italian restaurant for lunch. The customer service staff didn’t speak English at all, and to make matters worse, my phone was out of battery so I couldn’t communicate with them using the Google translator. Before I ordered, the staff showed me a menu full of Italian and no pictures at all. I was really desperate. Since it was difficult to communicate, I had to rely on my limited understanding of Italian and imagination about how they would prepare the dish. It was not easy to rely on imagination because I was afraid that I would make mistakes. After a long struggle, I ordered a risotto dish based on my imagination on flavor even though I had no idea what the ingredients were.
When the dish was served, I was shocked because my imagination was right. It was a good dish, with chicken and mushrooms. It matched what I had in mind exactly. By the way; it’s pleasing that the food was very delicious.
故事简介：在我的生活中，我经常遇到需要发挥想象力的情况。今天，我想和大家分享一个关于我在旅行中如何运 用想象力的故事。两年前的夏天，我去了意大利旅游，那里的大多数人英语都说得不好，所以我很难和他们交流。 一天我去一家意大利餐馆吃午饭。客服根本不会说英语，更糟糕的是，我的手机没电了，所以我无法用谷歌翻译和 他们沟通。点菜前，服务员给我看了一份全是意大利菜的菜单，没有图片。我当时真的很绝望。由于沟通困难，我 只能依靠自己有限的意大利语理解和想象他们如何准备这道菜。依靠想象力是不容易的，因为我害怕自己会犯错。 经过长时间的努力，我点了一道意大利调味饭，根据我对味道的想象，尽管我不知道食材是什么。当这道菜端上来 的时候，我惊呆了，因为我的想象是对的。这是一道好菜，有鸡肉和蘑菇。跟我想的完全吻合。顺便说一下，饭菜 很好吃，我很高兴。
