Learn to be a good speaker
If you are good at finding relevant arguments and enjoy speaking Herlufsholm has three good venues for you to further improve your ability to speak in a reasoned and precise manner that will give you self-confidence in addressing audiences.
Round Square Conferences
The collaboration among Round Square schools hold annual regional conferences and one big world conference. The focus is on young people meeting each other, and you are guaranteed a fantastic experience if you are engaged in Herlufsholm’ Round Square activities. Each conference has a particular theme, and the days are spent with presentations, group discussions, workshops, experiencing the host country’s culture, fun activities and new friendships.
Model United Nations
If you love politics, then Model United Nations is a fantastic playground for you. With conferences at home and abroad you will get a detailed knowledge of the political arena of the UN. There are common training sessions once a week so that you will be sharp when you leave for conferences. MUN takes place on a few schools in Denmark, but we have a tradition for going to conferences abroad, among them to the biggest one in Europe, in the Haag.
This is about the good argument. You learn about the British rules for debating and train to be able to speak in the English Speaking Union’s big national debating competition, where Danish high school students debate against each other. If you are good you may be able to get on the national team. You decide whether you want to participate in debating competitions abroad.
