In order to participate in the Senior Debates from the Tortosa English Festival, we worked a lot in class preparing ourselves for the competition. We searched information, exposed ideas and discussed in front of the rest of the class.
Finally, we decided our team: Ana Valenzuela, Robin Godwald and Martina Roig. The 15th of march we went to Tortosa to compete in the debates Many schools of all Catalonia participated in the competitions which was held in Tortosa University. This competition was like a tournament, where the judges taking into account many factors, decided the winner of each debate. There were eight teams and we had to perform from the first round.
When the competition started all was hard-fought. All the matches were very interesting. The topics were about the mobile phone in class, single-sex schools… At the end, in the final round, we won with the topic: “Brexit will damage the European Union”. Now these three girls will have the opportunity to spend three marvelous weeks in a University in Whales during the summer.
