Speaking Practice: Controversial Topics

José Manuel

This is a short reading about controversial topics that you have to read, analyze and prepare to give your opinion.

Controversial topics reading


My name is Mike Smith and I am gonna tell you what I think about two different topics


I think that women shouldn’t have an abortion by any means, I agree that it is their body but it is not their decision so they should have the baby and put him up for adoption.


I think that Marihuana shouldn’t be legal, not even for medicinal purpose, what do you want? a bunch of criminals walking around the streets?

Speaking Part

Think about what you would respond to each one of these situations and be ready to give your opinion about each one of them.
