Video: You said, but I think....

Here's another game to play whilst at home.

'"You said, but I think..." helps you to practise responding in debates, because it makes you directly reply to what the other person has said.

You just need two people, and something you disagree on (or are willing to take opposing sides on for the sake of a debate!).

How to play:

  1. Find a partner
  2. Choose a debate you will take opposite sides on.
  3. One person give their opinion
  4. From then on, each person must take turns in speaking but always begin with:

"You said... (and summarise what they said!), but I think... (and give your reply to them)"

How did it go? What did you debate about? How did it help your skills? Leave your comments below!
