Last month, two teams from the French debating club took part in the annual French debating competition! We had to prepare to argue three motions on important topics, such as banning fossil fuels and freedom of expression in music. Although preparing for the competition was challenging, attending the weekly debating club helped us gain the skills and confidence we needed! The experience of the competition itself was incredibly exciting. Once we were in the room, the adrenaline kicked in and it was time to start firing away our arguments! Between our two teams, we won five debates out of six and left feeling more confident in our language abilities than before.
