The Core Value of Practicing Debate


Debate offers students a platform to master the delivery of rational, coherent arguments. It enables them to create a compelling narrative by utilizing rhetorical eloquence; instills a great sense of poise and self-confidence and teaches the skills of researching, organizing, and presenting information in a persuasive format.
