Are you good at persuading people? Do you know how to express disagreement?
Knowing how to use language for disagreeing with or persuading people is incredibly useful when debating. Head over to the episode and listen to a segment of one of my classes where two students, Mafer and Milton, debate the following topic:
“All students caught cheating should automatically fail the course and be required to take the entire course the following year.”
Listen carefully to their conversation and notice the expressions they use for disagreeing and persuading.
