／Course Objectives and method
|The goal for this course is that the students improve their debating skills.|
|We will be studying debating and presentation skills. These are essential skills for the development and greater improvement of English speaking skills. One aspect that is important in this class is that you be willing to say your opinion or what you feel about something without reservations. This is a basic requirement needed for entering this class. The first half of this class will be watching debate videos and studying debate skills. The second half of this class will be debates. It is my hope that each person will have at least four debates. The goal for this class is for the students to become more proficient in speaking English and for the students to think quickly in English.|
