The Model United Nations is an engaging way for students to not only improve their English skills, but also to expand their knowledge of the world while developing other useful life skills in areas such as negotiation and leadership. Additionally, students will further enhance their speaking, critical thinking, diplomacy, and research writing abilities.
During the Model United Nations program, students simulate the United Nations by taking on the role of an ambassador attending an international conference. Each student is assigned a country and should spend time in advance researching important information about the country’s economy, politics, and culture.
They then develop positions and represent their country in negotiations with other delegates in order to solve some of the biggest global issues of today. By using diplomacy and good negotiation skills, students can hopefully further the goals of the country they represent.
The ultimate goal of the Model United Nations conference is to write formal resolutions which act as official action plans to help solve some of the world’s major problems. Students work together to find common ground and develop solutions that benefit not only their country, but all countries.
