    Maybe start with what the legal position is on euthanasia in France / England / other countries? And then possibly go on to explain why euthanasia has become more of an issue in recent years - i.e. medical science and technology can help keep people alive longer, but might not necessarily improve the patient's quality of life. You could then briefly set out your position on this topic and maybe introduce (briefly) one or two of your main arguments.

    Bon courage!

    I did A2 Edexcel French last year and my 'one minute introduction' was actually just 20 seconds - my teacher said he spoke to some examiners and they said you can do a shorter introduction and then you get longer to argue and get more interesting content in! Seemed to work

    I did Edexcel A2 and we were told that the presentation was to introduce the debate and outline your position in the argument. The rest of the debate is then the teacher asking more questions/challenging your points before moving on to questions on the wider A level topics.

    From the specification:
    "Students will first need to outline their chosen issue for about one minute, adopting a definite stance towards the issue. They should then defend and justify their opinions for up to four minutes. The teacher/examiner* will then initiate a spontaneous discussion in which a minimum of two further unpredictable areas of discussion will be covered. These issues may or may not relate to the chosen issue but will not require specialised factual knowledge or relate to
    French-language culture."
