A series of topics to train your discussion skills.
Agree to differ? provides you with a series of discussion topics that you can use to train your discussion skills. The aim of this series is to instill a certain degree of fluency and spontaneity in your interactions that prepares you for a regular interaction with native speakers without strain for either party. By speaking about giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options, you will encounter a lot of new vocabulary in this wide range of subjects and learn to explain your viewpoints on topical issues.
Agree to differ? requires a discussion partner. You will be guided through each discussion, helping you to reflect and evaluate your standpoint concerning a certain topic as well as the proficiency of your language skills.
First step: Find a discussion partner!
It is best, if you are roughly speaking the same level of English - but aspiring learners can also learn a lot from more proficient speakers of English.
Second step: Choose a topic!
Find a topic that is fun to you both, as well as challenging. You are going to learn some new words connected with that topic – so why not choose something that is a bit less ordinary?
Decide on one of the topics together with your discussion partner with the help of the „word support“ below. Clicking on one of these topics will bring you right to our „Agree to differ?“ course, where you will be guided through all the necessary steps.
- „What about this topic right here?“
- „What do you think about that topic?“
- „I don’t know to be honest…“
- „I don’t really feel like speaking about that one.“
- „It’s not really my pair of shoes.“
- „This one right here is great.“
- „That’s a great idea.“
- „Yeah, let’s do it.“
