Moments English Corner Program

A fantastic program we had today! The audience spoke for the lion’s share of talk time and shared personal and foundational personal experiences. Forward-thinking participants proposed future defining moments we want to see happen!

You decided that the key defining moments in life are the following:

1. Getting married

2. Deciding on a career

3. Entering college

4. Taking the Gaokao

5. Getting a first best friend

6. Having the first crush

7. Learning to use chopsticks

8. Moving away from the parents

Median Age of Important Moments

We polled the audience to discover at what age did we experience the important defining moments. The median age of the most important defining moment is 22 years old. Chip and Dan Heath agree that our early years are crowded with moments that become most memorable and meaningful.

 

Defining Moments Told Today

Philip told us a Pit Moment about quitting a hard-won job only to find his purpose and happiness in life.

Sheryl told us a Transition Moment about her first trip outside China years ago on August 28 when she arrived bewildered in Chicago for graduate studies and was warmly welcomed by a university official and her daughter.

Anastasia told us a Pits Moment about how helpful a stranger in Australia was after Anastasia lost her luggage in Shanghai before arriving in Australia without a change of clothing.

Jane told us an Insight Moment when she realized that the power of questions to improve her learning and make her a better student.

Jessica told us a Pride Moment when she won 1st prize for a map race in high school, a race that she’d never before run, using maps which are not her strength.

Canning told us a Milestone Moment when she received an emailed acceptance of her first research paper to be published.

Leahgole told us an Elevation Moment of realization after he used high technology during his studies at university.

Jack told us a Transition Moments when he became self-reliant while traveling alone and freely engaging with foreigners from all over the world in a hostel in Pusan, South Korea.

Sandra told us an Insight Moment about taking a new direction in her life after suffering an unexpected and life-threatening illness during a vacation in a remote part of China.

Thank you for you warm-hearted and important defining moments stories!

Future Moments

These defining moments in the future captured our attention and lit up our imagination:

Jacky will hike this Sunday with his daughter on Daluoshan to collect rubbish.

Austin will make his first public speech on Sunday, November 26.

Jane will persuade her school to segregate its rubbish.

Jack will create a group to persuade people to refrain from smoking in restaurants; George and Canning volunteered to join this group.

Sheryl will promote frisbee for fun outdoor games; George will join that fun.

Memorable and Meaningful Spontaneous Speaking

Everyone had something to say and a lot got said while we had fun and learned.

What was your most memorable moment from today’s program?
