About Me:I'm reliable and honest who just wants to figure myself out. I'm going through a season right now that is confusing to say the least. But it is going alright. I'm really sick of fake people and people who are unreliable. I'm ready to a good set of friends that i can one day call a family. I'm keen on waiting too. I'm realising that i don't need to listen or follow anyone and as long as i feel good about myself, i'm doing alright.
Activities:To be honest i've been quite turbulent lately and haven't been doing too much. I do love going to second hand shops and buying books for my collection. I recently got back into martial arts but would rather go into BJJ instead of kickboxing.
Beliefs:I've had a lot of beliefs, most were delusional, i got on the atheist bandwagon for some time but began to realise every belief has its limitations. I was raised christian and really love christian culture and history, as well as art and music and so on. What i want is to be able to make christianity palatable and my own in my generation. Many people have assisted me on this intent.
Books:King: Elliot Hulse I am getting involved with a lot of philosophers atm.
Movies:Not really sure about this? Ace ventura pet detective is funny, step brothers etc. I just watch movies to escape and laugh.
Music:I really like christian music
Quotes:"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." ~ Aristotle

"Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work." ~Aristotle

"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit." ~ Aristotle

"I like Aristotle" ~ Me
Sports Teams:I like martial arts.
TV Shows:Family guy, game of thrones, southpark.

Is it helpful to use debate as a way for language teaching in a class?

I'm an English teacher in Korea. I am going to start a debate class to improve students' speaking ability. Is it really helpful to use debate as a method for learning? If it is, how can a language teacher facilitate learners' interaction? If you think it isn't, I want you to post why it is not helpful....

Debate Impossible to accept. Read the rules and comment if you want to join debate. I do not plan to open this debate until at least 3 days later. Failure to abide by the format or terms of the debate will result in a loss of conduct during voting stage. If Con finds the terms to be unreasonable or inaccurate then he or she may alter the terms, but only with an argument as to why. Burden of Proof is on both sides. Terms: Overpopulation: Overpopulation is a function of the number of...
