Sarah Ellis: The benefits of debate: developing critical thinking and speaking skills

The art of debate has served humankind for centuries, playing a fundamental role in the development of democratic societies. 

In this session, we will explore, through practical examples, how debate can be successfully implemented and set up in the English classroom, supporting not only linguistic growth but also transferable skills and life competencies. Debate could be introduced from level B1, however it will be most suitable for higher level students (B2/C1 and above).

We will consider the different stages of the writing process and explore the use of authentic material and skills integration in face-to-face and online contexts to develop writing skills. We will also look at resources for learners and teachers to help foster learner autonomy and engagement with writing tasks.
