The e⁠-⁠training gives an overview of the five-sentence technique, which can be used to form convincing arguments. The prelude to a good argument includes a situational introduction. This is followed by several arguments - these must first be collected, ordered and formulated before they can finally be presented. The course offers a separate exercise chapter on the five-sentence technique and gives tips on how to parry factual counter-arguments and fend off unfair attacks.
