Yesterday I had 2 students in a class who had never met before. At the end of a lovely English lesson, I asked them their plans for the next week. The first student replied “tonight I’ve got to email my friend in Hong Kong because I’m going to visit her in 3 weeks”. The second student seemed shocked to hear this. She asked the first student “Are you going to Hong Kong on the 17th?” and the first student replied “No, I’m going on the 24th, why?”. The second student replied “because I’ve got to go to Hong Kong on the 17th because my company is sending me to do a course there!”
I loved that BOTH students used the one point well (for this particular one point example, click HERE), and that through its usage they found an amazing coincidence and something to chat about as they walked out of my English school. Now we can look forward to hearing both their stories about going to Hong Kong and see how similar, or different, their experiences were.
