The olympic games. debate

  1. 1. The Olympic games <br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3.
  4. 4. What do you know about the Olympic games?<br />When were the Olympic games?<br />Where were they held?<br />What are the objectives of the Olympic Games?<br />Are they usually achieved? <br />
  5. 5. Write in a piece of paper an issue related with the Olympic games<br />
  6. 6. I believe there is nothing wrong with the Olympics as they run today, if something works, we should leave it alone. Although there are some problems, they are beyond the responsibility of the Olympic committee. However, I believe countries at war should be banned from competing, or at least we should insist on a ceasefire. <br />
  7. 7. The games should have nothing to do with politics; the games exist to encourage the highest standards both on and off the field. Breaking world record is important, but providing excitement is the main purpose of the game. <br />
  8. 8. In the old games, had nothing to do with big business or entertainment for its own sake. Nevertheless. We athletes were justly proud of our physical and mental fitness. Sadly, the spirit of the game is dead- the must be given back to Greece where they began. <br />Adriana López <br />
  9. 9. We are applying to host the games next time so that we can boost our economy and provide more jobs for our citizens. We could be given an opportunity to improve all kinds of services. As a small country we should be given a chance to develop, too. <br />SylvieArnaud<br />
  10. 10. In my own opinion, the games are a media event: they are all about entertainment. The games should be spectacular-and the system of having the Olympics in a different country every four years is good because it increases interest.<br />
  11. 11. As an athlete, I think the Olympics are the opportunity to prove ourselves on the world stage and to become better known. In spite of the ideals and bringing pace and friendship, it is a competition and making a living. <br />
  12. 12. The world is in crisis, with wars and aggression all around the world. The games are a symbol of international competition and we have to work with all nations to make them work, despite our felling towards countries we perceive as aggressors. <br />HaruokoMyazaki<br />
  13. 13. If you were part of the Olympic Committee …<br />What sport would you include?<br />Why ?<br />video<br />
  14. 14. Some ideas<br />“Ladies and get gentlemen. We have discussed some proposal and after some considerations we conclude that…”<br />I think<br />We should<br />
  15. 15. Pay attention to…<br />When we are debating or having a discussion, we often use the passive voice with a modal verb:<br /><ul><li>To avoid the debate personal.
  16. 16. To avoid accepting responsibility for everything we say.
  17. 17. When we do not take responsibility for an action. </li></ul>e.g. “I think dancing should be taken into consideration because…”<br />
