Is it cold enough for you?
Today, I'll give you something to read and talk about. Later, you will be doing an assessment about negotiation, so I searched for something on that topic on the Internet.
Below is a link to an English lesson on About.com . If you scroll down the topics list on the right, you will find English as 2nd Language.
Here is a lesson that I found there. Read what it is about, and then later (another day) Pariya may have you work in groups and practise the negotiating phrases that are listed. One thing I would suggest is NOT to use the phrase "I disagree" too much. In normal conversation it is too strong. If you must, use the phrase: "I'm afraid I don't agree." It is softer.
After you have read and thought about the 3 schools, why don't you explore the rest of the home page? Just remember, some of it is written for teachers.
