German Debating

November 2020

AMC's fantastic German debate team took part in the first round of the Goethe Institut's national debating competition. The motion was "Es sollte einen Tag Unterricht am Computer pro Woche". We were the Pro Team and argued that in 2020, lessons on computers should definitely form part of our education. We took on Colaiste Ciarain from Athlone and were narrowly beaten. The judges praised our team for their impressive German and we are all very proud of their performance. Unglaublich gut gemacht!
