Group discussion topics

Group discussion topics:

Though IELTS exams do not have Group discussion as a module, practising this will help you speak better even on sensitive issues. 

In general many are confused with the differences between group discussion and debate.In Group discussion you do not argue, but only say your point when the speaker has finished. Only one member of the group is allowed to speak. Controlled language and words coupled with etiquette is mandatory.  Each topic can be discussed only for 10 - 20 minutes. There should be a group leader who takes care of the teams manners and rules in the session. Everybody in the group should be given a chance to speak. Topics are a bit sensitive and sensational, however the participant is expected not to lose control when ego hurts. Handle gentle man's way of discussion. The member who speaks or indulges hard with any member is disqualified in group discussion. 

These topics are meant only to develop a better communication skills. Handle with care. Schools or colleges practising group discussion should have a trainer or teaching staff to monitor the behaviour of the candidate while participating in this session.
