    (First Post) How to present an opposing argument in an essay?

    Hello!
    Firstly, this is my first post and after thoroughly reading the rules, I found that this place is just for me. No profanities, no obscenities, and friendly people all around. That's the place to be! Thanks in advance.
    So, for my question:
    How to present an opposing argument and rebuttal it appositely, and can I get a sample that implements said technique into a sentence or two?
    The topic is for an academic project, it is about my country hosting the Olympics and a supporting argument would be that it would raise the profile of the country. I want to say that such a key assumption is unwarranted as the infrastructure and the facilities in general are woefully
    unprepared, and the country is already famous.
    Thank you
    PS: Sorry for my English not being that good. My native language is Arabic and I'm only 16.

    Thank you for the quick response, I expected it to take days! :)
    Thank you for the link too, and here's my pitiful attempt:
    Some claim that hosting such a great tournament as the Olympics would raise the profile of the country, but such a key assumption is unwarranted and definitely short sighted. Given that the infrastructure and the facilities in general are worn out and woefully unprepared to handle the increased load, major failures are inevitable and would consequently make the country look "bad".

    Good work; keep going!
