Talking point: Life-changing experiences

This week's talking point is life-changing experiences. 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.

Can you think of a time when you made a mistake?
What did you learn from it?
Can you think about an experience you had when you were younger which have been useful to you in later life?
What is one of the most harrowing things you have ever experienced?
And your most rewarding experience so far?
Have you experienced any of these activities? Describe them.
