Discussion Class Topics



Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we have reduced our class sizes. As such, until our class sizes return to pre-pandemic numbers, presentation and debate style  discussion classes will not be held.


All discussion classes will be discussion style only.

- Thursday the 9th and Friday the 10th of July -


Should we have biased media?  -


We all know that news media outlets tend to have biases, specifically political biases. But is that a good thing?


Should news media be completely free of opinion?

Should news media be pure facts and no interpretation of those facts?


It's easy to get stuck in a loop of listening or reading the same biased media, especially when modern technology caters to what you believe.

Should we have to do our own research to get other perspectives on the news?

Should we be able to get fair views from all points of view without checking every different interpretation of the news?


Let's discuss these points!

- Why are young Japanese people committing suicide? -


I want to make it very clear that I am in NO way saying that the problem of youth suicide is only in Japan. I am perfectly awake that there are issues with youth suicide in many countries. However, we are in Japan, and on top of that, suicide in Japan has been a major societal issue for a long time. It's something we cannot ignore or deny is a problem here.


According to this article:



Although the overall suicide rate in Japan has been falling in recent years, the suicide rate among younger people is rising. More young people have been killing themselves in Japan in these last years, apparently increasing every year. But why is this this the case? 


Why is this trend seen in Japan?

What are some of the causes?

How can this be helped?


Let's discuss these points!


In class with Hohua!
