Introduce the topic All debates begin with a subject, or resolution. Often, this resolution may be a planned course of action that one team can argue for and another can argue against. opt for a subject to that your students will relate and maybe one with usage. you'll be able to build the subject less serious (the eating place ought to embody a lot of international dishes on the daily menu) or a lot of serious (the U.S. government ought to reform its visa application process). In any case, take care that your students perceive the problem and any specialised vocabulary that goes with it.
