Do you relish a juicy dispute? A fiery exchange? Do your neurons fire in delight when you’re challenged to take a stance for issues you believe in?
If so, then come put your persuasive skills to the test while practicing your English at weekly sessions of the Debate Club for Teenagers. You can expect a lively debate with our hosts Yuniya and Gleb providing some constructive judgement! The debate sessions take place every Thursday at 6:30-8:00 p.m. MSK on Zoom.
What is debating?
Though it may sound fancy, debating is simply arguing in its most passionate form. Teams of debaters try to persuade a judge of their viewpoint about a controversial issue while simultaneously fending off criticism from other teams.
These weekly sessions are best suited for teenagers and young adults with Upper-Intermediate to Advanced level of English. Previous debating experience is not required, however, participants are expected to be able to clearly express their thoughts in English and to defend their point of view using persuasive arguments.
Led by AMC volunteers Yuniya Fedotova and Gleb Selin.
