1. Born to succeed?
If you were lucky enough to be born into a wealthy family living in a spacious house in the suburbs, will it automatically spell a golden future for you? What if you were born into a slum or into a family ridden with multiple problems, including poverty? Does it mean you are doomed? How much does our fate depend on our background? Discuss.

2. What is sports?
Where would you draw the line when it comes to the definition of the word sports? Would ballet or dance or cheerleading be sports? How about card games, billiards or computer games? Write a speech to be given in class. Discuss and argue for your point of view by giving supporting examples and try to convince the audience of the fact that you are right.

3. Travel broadens the mind
They say that visiting foreign cultures and countries teaches you a lot about people, and also about yourself. Do you agree? How much have you travelled? Has travelling broadened your mind? Discuss and give examples.

4. Tired of ______, tired of life!
Tired of London, tired of life! This is a quote from Samuel Johnson, a famous poet and critic who lived in the 19th century. Insert a word of your choosing into the title and write about the topic in your blog.
