Competitive Debate

Why debating? Debate transforms young people into global people, from shy students into powerful speakers. It merges five essential skills: public speaking, critical thinking, logical analysis, world issue awareness and personal organization.

This course teaches British Parliamentary and World Schools-style debate. Students will learn argumentation development, speaking style, rebuttal strategy, speaker roles and case building. Every class will feature a real debate with opportunities for students to speak and receive personal feedback on their performance.

Students in this class are eligible to compete in overseas competitions. Our Competitive Debate Team has in the past participated in tournaments in mainland China, Taiwan, and Japan.
