Two WDI faculty members have just experienced huge success at the recent World Schools Debating Championship held in Washington, DC.

World Universities Debating Workshop instructor Debbie Newman of the UK led her England team to the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, defeating New Zealand 5-4 in the finals.

World Schools Debating Workshop and World Universities Debating Workshop instructor Bojana Skrt of Slovenia led her Slovene team to the English as a Foreign Language WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP.

Congratulations to them both, and we look forward to having them back at World Debate Institute 2009 next summer.
