Jessica: Yihua! your presentation was awesome! I'm really impressed!
YH: 谢谢你 Jessica! 做得好，可不是我一个人的功劳！ 我们小组成员坐下来，来了一次头脑风暴！所以演示才这么成功。
Jessica: 头脑风暴？What's that?
Jessica: Oh! I think I know what you are talking about! You guys had a brainstorming session.
YH: Brain, b-r-a-i-n, 大脑； storm, s-t-o-r-m, 风暴。加在一起，brainstorm 就是头脑风暴喽！
Jessica: Exactly! Brainstorm basically means to put your heads together in order to come up with good ideas.
YH: put someones' heads together, 把头放在一起！引伸出来就是集思广益。就象中文里说的，三个臭皮匠，赛过一个诸葛亮。
Jessica: That's right! 对了，吴琼的生日快到了，Let's put our heads together and figure out what we can give her for her birthday.
YH: Good idea! 我知道，吴琼特别标新立异，所以啊，这生日礼物也得有创意才行。
Jessica: I know how picky she can be... But we can do it! Let's think outside the box and see what we should get him.
YH: Think outside the box? 到盒子外面去找?
Jessica: It basically means to break out of your normal ideas and be creative.
YH: 这个说法形象！Think outside the box! 跳出条条框框去想，就是有创意。集思广义，一定能找到有创意的想法。
Jessica: There you go! Now tell me what you've learned today!
第二，集思广义，可以说: put ones' heads together;
第三， 创造性思维，叫think outside the box.
