In addition to speech analysis skills, the participants of the course were able to find themselves in the place of politicians. Students delivered their own speeches in the debates on the model of the British Parliament. They presented arguments for and against the moratorium on the death penalty in Russia and the problems of modern television.
As Anna Plisetskaya, the teacher of the course noted, international and Russian students can perceive information differently. After watching the video of debates of Kennedy and Romney most of international students made a conclusion that Romney was more convincing while in some Russian students’ opinions Kennedy was the winner.
