Talking point: My favourite person

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

Today's topic is talking about your favourite person. You are going to tell the members of your conversation group about a member of your family or a person you know well. Before getting together with your friends, go over the questions below, so that you ideas flow more easily when you meet up with the members of your conversation group and you can work out vocabulary problems beforehand.
  • How long have you known this person?
  • What is their relationship to you?
  • How often do you see each other or talk?
  • Have they got any annoying or endearing habits?
  • Is there anything they used to do in the past but don't do anymore?
  • What attracts you to this person?
  • Have you had / do you have any disagreements?
  • What is their conversational style like?
  • How do they approach life?
  • Do you have anything in common?
  • In what aspects are you different?
To illustrate the point listen to Rebecca and Gareth talking about their best friend in two audio clips from ELLLO.
