International Languages pupils attend university debate

Higher and Advanced Higher pupils from the Faculty of International Languages had an exciting and informative visit to Heriot Watt University’s annual Multilingual Debate.  The debates showcase the interpreting skills of the university’s undergraduate students, while providing opportunities for postgraduate students to develop their professional skills.

The pupils listened to the debates and were very impressed by what was being said by the panel.  The panel deliver their views in a number of different languages – French German, Spanish, English, Arabic, Chinese and British Sign Language.

A worthwhile trip for our senior pupils with the audience encouraged to ask questions.
