English Debate Club

This week's topic:

Is there any one ideal system of government/economics?  From Capitalism to Communism, there are positives and negatives to any political ethos put into practice thus far.  Some work in theory but not in practice, others don't seem to make sense yet work for those who live it.  Is there a happy medium, or can we invent a brand new utopia... and start a revolution from Cafe String* ;-)

 

* I'm kidding, my only experience of revolution is Les Miserables, and I can't sing so would be rubbish in a revolution.

 

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!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
