On 17th January, following the New Year holiday, students and teachers got together to play “Debates”, an intellectual game that they first discovered last year and have developed a great love for.

In the luxurious Hyundai Motorstudio, we tried to answer global questions such as the legitimacy of the death penalty, the legalisation of weapons- but the burning question was: can we get by without obscene Russian language lectures?

The game was very interesting; both students and teachers played while the employees of the Hyundai Motorstudio made up the panel of judges. Participants made worthy speeches with interesting arguments and stories based on their own experiences.

The game ended with a chat over tea and cake and with gifts from our partners – the hypermarket network Globus (thanks to Svetlana Anatoleva) and the company Morgan Lewis (thanks to Alena Marusichenko).

A huge thank you to our remarkable hosts Aleksey and Ekaterina!

The game “Debates” has become one of the students’ favourite events; they love to participate and can never wait for the next game. Participants come across as confident, ambitious, bold, pleasant young people with their own opinions. Everyone listens to them and engages in discussion with them, either accepting or contesting their views.

The main thing is that during the game each student reveals their own character and makes friends.
