English Debate Club

This week's topic:

Can what we don't know harm us? If a trusted friend of a billionaire steals a small amount of money that they'll never miss, what harm is there? If we break into someone's home, have a party then return the house to exactly how it was so they would never know what happened - does it matter? If I know that my friend's wife is cheating and he would never find out, if I tell him did she ruin their marriage or did I?* *disclaimer to male friends of mine, this is hypothetical, relax! ;-)

The English Debate Club:

Challenge and improve your English skills with lively discussions and debates! Sometimes we stick to debate format, other times it evolves into a general discussion.

Topics will be set at least a week in advance (please feel free to message the group leader with topic suggestions) and participants are welcome to prepare beforehand or wing it - but everyone will be encouraged to contribute to the discussion. Teams will be assigned on the night, so be prepared to argue either side of the debate. There will be some preparation time once teams are assigned.

Focus will be on crafting arguments in English, phrasing for emphasis and expanding vocabulary at an advanced level. Native English speakers who would like to brush up on their debating skills very welcome also!

    Can't believe I'm missing the debate again(. Claire, you should introduce a penalty system to raise my commitment)
