1) Tell me your life story.
2) Dating and romance (even works with older married students, or uni-aged students who are too young to have dated).

I try to keep up with pop culture and ask them about Fei Chang Hu Rao, Sister FengFeng, Guo MeiMei, whatever is going viral at the moment.

Also, Occupy Wall Street and the rigged Russian elections have got them asking about protests. I've told them about the Velvet Revolution in Czeckoslavakia 1989 and May 1968 in France. That was thier first time hearing about those. There were some that happened in China too.....

I had a student want to discuss sex before marriage... I think she was a first year too (at university, you perves!)

I also think that many people here are quite aware of many social problems here, but usually don't feel confident in discussing them openly in a normal gathering, but having a foreigner can break that shyness. They want to talk about things, but aren't sure. It's not a topic I tend to bring up, but if they do, I won't shy away from it.

If it's an English corner at university, discuss their ways to fix problems, or come up with something controversial, and act as mediator or devil's advocate. It gets them really wanting to say something...

A:Most of the companies still use traditional methods of hiring such as, interviews, resume reviews, background screening, etc. HR professionals still follow the several, decades old pattern of personality assessments but in a quicker and efficient way, which will yield accurate results. Employee assessments tools are extremely beneficial in realizing the results are quantifiable and go a long way in ascertaining the work style and behavioral attributes of potential employees before they set foot into your company. In-fact they take out the guesswork involved in recruiting the employees who can work together.  The major benefit of the assessment tools is not confined to the hiring process, but also used as an effective tool of employee retention. The assessment tool will identify the gap between employee work style and job needs. They provide you a road map for recruitment of prospective employees and the further development of essential traits such as, leadership ability, individual development, team communications and conflict resolution. It will also help the employees to make better, satisfying and successful career choices. Nowadays more and more organizations are integrating personality assessments with skill tests, leadership evaluations, 360-degree assessment, evaluation and feedback, disc personality profile and behavioral assessment. -- LoganMountgarre
