Take part in a discussion
Discussions are a great way to solve problems, find the appropriate solutions and suggest some recommendations. However, you need to remember some ground rules to have a good discussion.
First step is to collect information about the topic you are going to discuss. Then learn how to present your arguments. Learn the right phrase to say what you think and to answer other people. Now, you are ready to have a discussion. Remember some ground rules: use only positive language, respect each other, and relate to your friend's opinions, using the phrases on page 103.
1. Get ready to talk
Skim the text and decide whether it is useful or interesting for you. With your partner collect what you have learned about youth travel. Use mind maps or clusters to present the information.
Youth travel is important because it is a market for the future - not just for the future development of the young people themselves, but also the places they visit. WYSE Travel Confederation research shows that young travelers often spend more than other tourists. What’s more, young travelers are the pioneers who discover new destinations, because they are at the cutting edge of using new technology. Young travelers gain cultural benefits from their travel, and contribute to the places they visit. For young people travel is a form of learning, a way of meeting other people, getting in touch with other cultures. Travel is a source of career development. Travel is a means of self-development. Travel is part of young peoples’ identity - you are where you've been.
2. Let's discuss
Do you agree or disagree with the statement that travelling is a means of self discovery? Why?
a) Collect the information about the topic.
b) Practice presenting your arguments. For example: I believe that travelling makes you far more confident as it forces you to cope with a series of challenging situations, giving you die assurance that you ARE capable of doing things that you perhaps previously thought you weren't. These situations can come in all forms - meeting new people, getting lost, having your possessions stolen - but the feeling of overcoming each one will always be the same and equally rewarding.
c) If you answer other people's arguments, be always polite. For example: I do agree with you that travelling makes you far more confident I would like to add that travelling makes you more interesting. All these stories that you'll come back with make travelers such fascinating people.
d) Continue discussing die statement
e) Write a report on die statement "Travel is a source of career development"
