1)Globalization Para Write-up
Write one paragraph on ["Globalization is more divisive than unifying." Do you agree?], taking the 'divisive' stand. Practise your 'three bridges' and 'Throw-IT-back'!
Brainstorm for points on the following 2 questions:
-Do you think life today offers us too many choices?
-Should advertising be restricted in any way?
