English Debate Club

This week's topic:

In light of this week's riots in Husby, how easy is it to assimilate in Sweden?  Can it be made easier; should it?  Is the immigration issue the root cause of the riots or a scapegoat for a deeper problem?

 

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!

    What is the policy on leaving early? I have another engagement I need to get to and would like to leave at 19:30, but I don't want to annoy anyone by flaking out.

    The co-op that I live has their yearly meeting (årsmöte) at 19, so it seems that I won't be showing up.

    Unfortunately I had to wake up early and work from home, so it's very difficult for me to be there at 1700. Next week, then.

    I have little to no Swedish skills, but I love a good debate, and seeing as this is the English Debate Club I hopefully should be alright.
