English Debate Club

This week's topic:



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!

    We had a debate mostly on energy policy. I learned that the new nuclear reactors that are upcoming can re-use old nuclear waste and wringe 100 times more energy out of it!

    Okay, I'm officially paranoid that you all have more fun without me ;-) !! You will in that case be happy to hear that I am away for the next two weeks, back Tues 14 May. I won't cancel the events, but won't have a lot of internet access so won't set topics - you're welcome to meet and set a topic at the beginning of the evening or do so in the comments beforehand, or simply all wait with bated breath for my return!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
