Youth-Parliament-Sitting-e1352757088634
Hi all! Hope all of you have a fulfilling and fun first week! The topic for week 2 meeting is team debate. Most of us have learned to read and write. But how many of us have learned to speak? Not talk but really speak. We aim to improve your speaking skill because it is invaluable in any chosen path of life.

For this meeting, we will assign a debate topic on the spot and divide you into two teams. Each team is expected to deliver an opening, a closing, and a 6-minute free debate. Debaters are required to refute their opponents’ argument and defend and elaborate on their points. Detailed rule will be explained during the meeting.
