The advanced class came up with a great topic for their debating lesson: Team Edward or Team Jacob? Students were asked to pick a side and get in to groups. To mix things up, the teacher then asked them to argue the opposite opinion. This way instead of just arguing to win the debate, students had to focus on using the correct production skills in conversation. By improving fluency and increasing confidence using this technique, students will be able to better argue their own opinions.
It was definitely a tough call, but in the end the class agreed that Team Jacob was the winner. So which team would you be on?
