This week's topic:

Will the internet spell the end of oppressive government regimes? With the ability to mass global communication rising by the moment, how long can oppressive regimes continue to isolate and control their people?

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!
