Talking point: Competition

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

Do you consider yourself to be a competitive person?
In what ways are you competitive (with family or friends, at work or school, in sport or games)?
Who is the most / least competitive person you know?
Which of these quotations do you agree most with?
Winning isn't everything, it's the taking part - Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing
'Challenges give meaning to life'. Do you agree?
Have you ever been  the first to achieve something?
Have you ever won the first prize in something?
Do you remember any occasions when you did something for the first time?
Do you excel at something?
Think about a moment in your life when you achieved a goal: What did you achieve? How difficult was it? What strategies did you use to achieve that goal?
