The aim of this course is to use debate to develop reasoning and integrated language skills for students. Debating requires advanced oral presentation skills as well as logical deduction, which helps to enhance the cognitive development of young learners. We aspire to encourage students to develop better presentation and independent thinking skills with an ability to analyse different motions. By the end of this course, students will be able to conduct a debate on their own with in depth knowledge of debating, specially with that of NESTA style.
This course comprises three main elements: debate skills, teamwork and vocabulary building. A wide range of contemporary, controversial issues is covered in this course including modern day slavery, cruelty against animals and the positive and negative impacts of the internet.
