The teacher in this lecture starts with a review on what has been covered on debates, and continues the lecture with how to be persuasive in debates. The students discuss at the beginning the ways in which they could be persuasive, and then they watch a video that demonstrates the application of those techniques through language and tone of voice. The students are asked to practice a few sentences using the mentioned debating techniques, with an emphasis on the tone of voice.
After the students have a brief knowledge and practice on the debating skills, they are given the chance to think about the language that is used while debating through a group activity. The students will use the language in the next lecture in a real debating activity
