    Default Topics for intermediate students

    Hi,

    Do you think the following topics are appropriate for intermediate level:


    • abortion
    • animal rights
    • death penalty
    • euthanasia

    I'd like to use these topics in converstion classes. Unfortunately I haven't met the learners yet.


    Any help is appreciated

    A lot depends on how old the students are, and where they come from. A lot of heat could be generated by some of these topics.

    It might be worth trying some less controversial topics first
