This year again, the Francophonie UK group (which includes the representations of France, Canada, Switzerland, Monaco, Belgium, and Quebec in the UK) have decided to place schools in the spotlight by organising a grand debating competition for British pupils in years 12 and 13 learning French in secondary schools in the country. These debates are very impressive in terms of eloquence and the high quality of exchanges and select the best debating teams in the country. More than ten teams representing seven regions of the United Kingdom will face each other in the last qualification round. The national final will take place on 20 March at the Institut français du Royaume-Uni. The jury teams will comprise members of diplomatic missions of French-speaking countries, representatives of educational circles, and individuals from the world of the arts.
Free limited seating. To book your place, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
