  App Store里面有很多帮助我们提高效率的应用程序,例如今天我们要介绍的Forest!它鼓励人们放下手机,专注于我们的工作。当你不玩手机时,它会养成一棵虚拟的树。但是当树还在生长的时候,如果退出App,树便会开始枯萎。后来该App还增加了一个朋友系统,只有当每个人都保持专注时树木才会长大,所以为了不连累队友,你也得专心学习告别手机了。因为这是雅思口语考试,我们不用完全遵照该App的功能介绍,如果你有什么新的点子,随便加上去就行了:

  The most effective way to help me focus is using an app called Forest.

  I used to have a very short attention span, because I just couldn’t help checking what’s new on the social media and I like to chat with my friends on the phone. So my study efficiency was always very low.

  So one day, my teacher came up with an idea to help me solve this problem. She recommended this app to me, Forest, as the name suggests, it has something to do with trees. And here’s how it works. After you download this app, you could plant a virtual tree in this app, and if you could leave your phone alone for over half an hour after the tree is planted, the young tree will grow into a bigger tree. And if you successfully plant 50 trees, which means you have a small forest in your phone, someone will actually help you plant a real tree somewhere. And the coolest part is, the tree will be named after you. However, if you can’t resist the temptation of playing with your phone, and touch your phone in less than 30 minutes after the tree is planted, the tree will be dead, but of course, you are allowed to use some of the apps in your phone, like the dictionary or music apps.

  So you see, this app has helped me become more self-disciplined and more concentrated when I’m studying.
