In my class today, I was told to make an debate about a theme me and my partner Christian rapp disagreed about. We agreed together to argument about the famous “Bunadene” in Norway. My task was to protect the Bunad, and it’s reputation with good pro-facts and arguments, and Christian would tell about all the Con-Facts about them. My goal with this debate was to win it, but also to show my vision and thoughts about the Norwegian “Bunads”. We had two spectators under the debate about the “bunadene”, and they agreed with me that I had the best arguments in this conversation. Sow I can proud say that I won this debate, but I want to say it was a draw, because I left the debate when we past 5 minutes in our video. Although I think we made a good debate, and I am really happy with the results.
