22nd World Schools Debating Championships

8th - 19th February 2010 in Doha, Qatar

WSDC 2010 (official website)

Congratulations go out to our national team, who took part in the 2010 World Schools Debating Championships in Doha, Qatar. They won 5 of 8 debates (something never achieved by a German team before) and came 24th of 57. In addition, they were the third best EFL (English as a Foreign Language) team, with Leonie Beyrle the top EFL speaker of all and Inka Mößinger 5th best.
This is a stunning achievement and our good wishes and congratulations go out to the team (Leonie Beyrle, Inka Mößinger, Katrin Sadroschinski, Dilek Sevinc and Max Stumpp) and to their coach, Jana Gilke!
