English Conversation – Creativity

This is the preparation material for an English conversation lesson about creativity.  Creativity is about turning new ideas into reality. It involves two steps: thinking of an idea and then creating it.  If you have ideas but don’t create them, you are imaginative but not creative.  There are many different ways people express creativity.  It can be expressed through art, cooking, designing, fashion, architecture, and business ideas and inventions. The world would be a very boring place without creativity.
