This is nothing but informal exchange of words among some friends sitting in canteen, hostel, tea shop or even at friend’s place. This is not a debate. You don’t have to take side or even come to a conclusion. There is no chairman. You can say what you like, when you like and as many times as you like.
There are no bars except at one point of time only one of you should be speaking or else it’ll become a fish market. To begin with you will be given two topics to choose one of them for discussion. You’ll then get 10-15 minutes for discussion on that topic after which discussion will be called off. After that you’ll be given one more topic without a choice. This time you’ll get about the same time for discussion and that’s it.
Please don’t worry about your expression. It’s your idea that matters as long as everyone understand what is said, it’s good enough.
POINTS TO BE KEPT IN MIND:-
a)Don’t argue among yourself.
b)Don’t contradict other.
c)Support only logical points.
d)Every time try to come out with new points.
e)Don’t form sub-groups and discuss among yourself.
f)Don’t shout or try to dominate others.
To prepare for group discussion, read blogs and editorial column of any English newspaper. This will not only enhance your knowledge on the current happenings but also improve your language skill.
