The FAU Debating Society

The FAU Debating Society

Convincing other people of a position with precise arguments is not only an important skill in life, but also fun.

We debate British Parliamentary style or German Open Debate style, with both the motion and the debater’s position being drawn at random.
Participants benefit from the improving of their public speaking and argumentation skills, it is also excellent training for quick, rational thinking. Debaters learn to distinguish good arguments from bad ones and to recognize and employs heuristics and linguistic framing.

The meetings are open to everyone and any previous knowledge is not required.

The Debating Society is looking forward to welcoming you for an exciting semester!
