Group Discussions: Poverty, Conflict

Hey everyone!

Our last topic was quite light and silly, so this time I’d like to bring up some more serious ones: poverty and conflict.

Saturday

On Saturday (April 4th) we’ll discuss poverty again. Here are some new questions you might hear (new lexis is in italics):

1. Aristotle said “Poverty is the parent of crime and revolution.”  Do you agree?

2. How would the world be different if there was no poverty?

3. Which is more important to conquer, terrorism or poverty?

Monday

Our topic for Monday (April 6th) is conflict.  Conflict is a very broad topic, so I’m only going to post three sample questions this time.

Here are some questions regarding conflict I may ask you:

Beginner: What kind of conflicts occur in the family?

Intermediate: Is conflict always negative?  Can you think of an example of a good conflict?

Advanced: What are some global conflicts going on now?  Can you think of any solutions to them?
