Debating Skills

The course is for more advanced learners who want to get a simplified taster of a debating environment. It is a fun environment, challenging but with great rewards in the advanced use of the language. 

Advanced Learners

Debating Skills


The course consists of 4 lessons where students learn to apply the criteria for a successful debate (clear viewpoints, confident use of terminology, eye contact, engaging, funny at times, knowledgeable, good timing). 2 opposing teams will present their views on the topic. All students are required to submit an opinionated writing piece beforehand where they can show off their terminology use and presentation structure (introduction - 3 viewpoints - conclusion). They need to present these 3 points in the lesson and will need to be able to confidently answer questions from the opposing team before deciding whether or not to join the opposing team.
