Through the advent of the Internet and new information technologies, the world has become increasingly more competitive in recent years across all sectors.  Because of this, it is imperative that today’s university students in Spain learn how to move themselves in what has become the universal language of English.


To this end, it is not enough to simply study grammar and vocabulary. To enter the competitive environment of today’s economy, both domestically and globally, students must learn to 1) formulate their own ideas in a structured and logical manner; 2) communicate these ideas with passion and courage; 3) connect with their audience in order to solicit the desired outcome of their communications.

Through its university programs, the ESU España addresses this crucial need. We work directly with the student, either in a small group class or a one-to-one basis, to develop and hone in on their public speaking abilities as well as augment overall self-esteem and self-worth. 

Additionally, the ESU España customizes programming to the specific needs of the University, working closely with academic coordinators and student actvity organizers to ensure that all students have direct access to the best trainings and resources available, as well as opportunities to participate in tournaments and educational programming with other Universities and abroad.

SALA C205 DE 10,00 A 14,00 HORAS

The English-Speaking Union has co-organised with the Universidad Carlos III the presentation event for the bi-lingual university competition. The Sociedad de Debate UC3M faced Duke University in a debate about political responsibility.

The ability to speak and debate in public and a good command of English are two of the most important weapons that Spanish university students must master in their quest for success in the international job market. For this reason the Madrid students will have the opportunity to test their skills in an official debating tournament organised for the region in 2013. As an introduction to this tournament the Sociedad de Debate UC3M organised an exhibition debate in English between its own debating club and Duke University, which ranks amongst the top US universities.

Conscious of the importance of debating and the need that Spanish students have to acquire these skills, the organisers of this event have received an important institutional support for organising the First International Bilingual Debating Tournament in the Comunidad de Madrid, next year. La Fabrica de los Discursos, the company with whom ESU-Spain has a cooperation agreement, also participates in organising these events.
