Do you like to argue with people? If so, have you ever heard about debates?
When I started my studies in EPC, we found out that debate is such a super duper way to improve our speaking skills, and not only speaking, also comprehension, attention, teamwork, outlook and so on.
If you are unsure whether to begin debating or not, here are some advantages and my own schedule of debating
1. Improve your vocabulary
To catch up with other speakers and improve your language, you’ll have to improve your vocabulary and the way how to use them. It will involve you to read more books and eventually, your English will become better.
2. Work on your confidence
Debating requires a great deal of confidence and public speaking skills. In your first games, you may mumble or even stop speaking (it happened to me a lot). However, it will motivate you to speak more and in a more great way.
3. Book your speaking
If you learn to speak in a great way, you will also write in a great way. Vocabulary and grammar that you learn will influence your writing skills as well.
4. Think differently
Another point of debating is it will improve your critical thinking. This skill will help you a lot in your future while studying abroad.
5. Think log term
I am quite sure that you will take IELTS exam, your research can be used in Writing and Speaking parts of the exam. You will feel yourself more confident while being examined.
If you found out debate as an interesting activity, I should tell you the organization too.
There are a lot of types of debate, but I will tell you the most popular ones now.
