Speak up 2023, debate competition in French

Project: Knowledge Exchange

Project Details


Revival post pandemic of the competition organised by the Alliance Française with a team from Glasgow University and a team from Strathclyde University. The students prepare 4 questions in advance and discover on the night if they will argue in favour or against. The debate took place in March during the Francophone cultural celebration week.
The relaunch of this event, which had to happen over a short period of time, was made possible by Emilie Perez, cultural coordinator of the Alliance Francaise, Ms Noel-Claassen from the University of Glasgow and myself, event coordinator for Strathclyde. My colleague, Ms Piochaud-Prevost, and I noted how well students performed and how well students in 2nd year and in Honours collaborated.
