The general discussion is a useful tool for students to practice their writing and reading skills in an interactive format. Students will answer a discussion question that the teacher posts each week. The discussion question can be used as either a review of a certain topic that was previously covered, or to begin a new topic. Students can view what others have posted about the same topic, and can respond to those as well. Students who have a lower English ability can answer in one word, or you can challenge higher students to use simple or complex sentences.
