Talking point: Your most treasured possession

In our weekly 'Talking point' section we continue focusing on the anecdote feature of Macmillan's Inside Out.

Today's topic is about your most treasured possession. Before getting together with the members of your conversation group, go over the questions below, so that you ideas flow more easily when you get together with the members of your conversation group and you can work out vocabulary problems beforehand.
  • What is your most treasured possession?
  • What's it made of?
  • What does it look like?
  • How old is it?
  • How long have you had it?
  • Did somebody give it to you or did you acquire it yourself?
  • What special significance does it have?
  • Did it belong to somebody else before?
  • Does it remind you of a particular person? Who?
  • Does it remind you of a time or an event in the past?
  • What happened?
  • Where do you keep your treasured possession?
  • Do you wear it, carry it around with you or does it have a special place in your home?
  • Who will you leave it to when you die?
