This week's topic:
With only 9 million speakers, is the Swedish language's days numbered? Should it be? Is there a value is speaking a relatively minor language or is mutual comprehension essential to today's increasingly global society? The EU was created for ease of migration and skills going where they're needed, but a qualified Spaniard can't get a job in Munich or London if they only speak Spanish - does that defeat the purpose?
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!
