Description

This debate, presented by students on the Linfield College Forensics Team, offers an opportunity for the Linfield community to see some of the work of our Spanish-language debaters. The United States is now home to the second largest Spanish-speaking population in the world, and this year the Linfield Forensics team has expanded to include practices and competitions in Spanish. The Linfield team has had great competitive success so far in Spanish-language debate, with teams participating in semi-final and final rounds at regional and international competitions earlier in spring 2017. The debate includes four speakers and is on the motion, “La Costa Oeste debe abandonar los Estados Unidos” (The West Coast should secede from the United States). The debate will conclude with brief moderated discussion (in Spanish and English) with the audience. All are welcome to attend regardless of Spanish comprehension.
