Freshers Training

You have heard there is a debating club in town, but aren’t yet sure what it is all about? You imagine a round table, and people chatting about a variety of topics over a glass of wine? Or possibly, you already know what you can expect, and are ready to start your debating life.

Either way, Debattierklub Wien, Vienna’s most competitive debating club, holds a range of beginner seminars this winter semester. Our experienced members and trainers will introduce you to the world of debating and everything you need in order to participate in a debate.

At Debattierklub Wien, you will learn how to deliver logical and structured speeches, as well as formulate arguments under time-pressure for either sides of a topic. Furthermore you will learn how to effectively engage with and refute the other side’s arguments.

Besides the more obvious skills you can develop while debating, there are other benefits to it too. Check this list for more.

Ready… set… go!

Our trainings take place Mondays and Wednesdays . On Mondays we debate in German, on Wednesdays debates are being held in English. The programm is geared towards offering you an easy start into the game of debating, and will help you to practice debating in an effective environment.

Hooked? See you at DKWien! All trainings start at 7 pm at the WU Campus in the Teaching Center (“TC”, the first building on your right if you enter the campus coming from Krieau underground station).

During this winter term 2019/20 Training will usually take place at TC. 3rd floor, room 3.11.

For exact dates and times check out our calendar or our facebook events.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

  1. Hallo,
    kann man bei Euch zu jedem Training ohne Vorkenntnisse erscheinen, bzw. jederzeit einsteigen? Oder muss man das Fresher’s Training am Semesteranfang durchlaufen haben? Vielen Dank im Voraus für die Antwort & LG, Stefan Wolf

  2. Hey,

    man kann zu jedem Training kommen. Wir geben dir dann eine kurze Einführung in das Format (oder du liest dir die Regeln durch 😉 )und du kanst mitmachen. Eine tiefergehende Einführung in Strategie und Übungen bieten wir immer beim Fresher’s Training.

    Also schau vorbei, wenn du Zeit hast.

    LG Joy

  4. Hello! 
    I would like to know if I have to send an email or something to the Debate Club Administration to prove I am going to assist to an English training session or do I only need to appear? 
    Thanks in advance, 

  5. Hi,

    wann beginnen dieses Semester wieder die Treffen? Ich würde gerne mal vorbeischauen und habe auf FB noch keine Infos gefunden…

  6. Hi Bianca, wir haben die Events mittlerweile upgedated und freuen uns wenn du vorbeischaust!

    Ankündigung durch zusagen beim Event wird gerne gesehen, ist aber nicht Voraussetzung um mitzudebattieren. 🙂

    @Tara: You can only appear, we do however appreciate pople clicking “attend” at our Facebook training Events because sessions are easier to be planned in that case.

    Looking forward to seeing you!
