Week 7: Individual Debate


Happy Mother’s Day! The topic for week 7 meeting is individual debate. Most of us have learned to read and write. But how many of us have learned to speak? Not talk but really speak. Debate is one of the most important speaking skills that is applicable for any chosen path of life. With its emphasis on critical thinking, effective communication, and teamwork, debate skills serve us well in school, in the workplace and in life. So come to our meeting to practice your debating skills together with us!

For this meeting, members will compete in pairs of two and the winner will advance into the next round. We will have four rounds with different debate topics. Debaters are required to defend and elaborate on their points and refute their opponents’ argument. Detailed rule will be explained during the meeting.
