Talking point: Childhood memories

This week's talking point is childhood memories. Before getting together with the members of your conversation group, go over the questions below, so that ideas flow easily when you meet up with your friends and you can work out vocabulary problems.

What is your earliest childhood memory? Describe it.
What are your best memories of when you were a child?
Was your childhood a happy time? Why/Why not?
Do the photos from your childhood show?
What do your parents tell you from when you were a child?
Were you told off a lot? What for?
What did you enjoy doing as a child? Why?
Did you ever set up any secret groups or societies?
What was your favourite food when you were young? Do you still like it?

Do you ever talk about your childhood with anybody?
If yes, what kind of things do you talk about and who with? If no, why not?
