Talking point: Travel

This week's talking point is travel. Before getting together with the members of your conversation group, go over the questions below, so that ideas flows more easily when you meet up with your friends and you can sort out vocabulary problems beforehand.
  • When was the last time you went on a day trip? Where did you go?
  • Does anyone you know ever go on business trips?
  • Have you ever been on a shopping trip, a school trip or a hunting trip?
  • Do you usually travel light?
  • Do you know anyone who has been travelling for a few months? Where did they go?
  • What's the longest journey you've ever taken?
  • Has anything strange or scary ever happened to you while travelling?
  • Have you ever had a terrible journey? If so, how was your journey?
  • Have you ever had to get a visa to visit another country?
  • Have you ever hired a car to make a journey? How did you go about it?
  • Have you ever had some sort of problem when boarding a plane or at an airport?
To illustrate the point, you can watch this BBC video where writer Alain de Botton explains his feelings and ideas about airports.
