Topic 2

This is the topic that will be used during the last half of the Debate Season.

JH Regionals/Provincials Topic

Bilingual Debate Resources

DÉBAT BILINGUE RESSOURCES


L’Association de Débat et d’Elocution de l’Alberta s’est engagée à promouvoir le débat bilingue. Tous les ans, nous tentons de fournir des tournois réguliers, avec un programme bilingue régional et provincial. Chaque année, nous traduisons notre paquet de thèmes de recherches numéro 3.

Nous participons également à un séminaire national annuel parrainé par la Fédération canadienne des Débats d’étudiants (www.csdf-fcde.ca ). Ce séminaire est le seul événement bilingue de locution au Canada. Une partie du séminaire implique le passage d'une langue à l'autre au cours des débats et des discours afin de respecter les deux langues officielles du Canada.

Si vous voulez accueillir un concours de débats bilingue, ou souhaitez développer un programme de débat bilingue dans votre école, vous pouvez nous contacter à l’adresse électronique : contact[at]albertadebate.com
