Everyone should explore music in foreign languages.
Debate Rounds (3)
However, the fundamental problem with Pro's arguments is that they do not support the resolution. Pro says first, "Why not? You can often learn a lot about a culture through its music." But this doesn't show why everyone should explore music in foreign languages. All that it demonstrates is that those interested in learning about a foreign culture can experience that learning through studying the music of that culture. The sum of Pro's position is summed up in Pro's last post: "There is no reason why people can't be introduced to different cultures through their music." But this doesn't even claim, let alone demonstrate conclusively, that everyone should explore music in foreign languages. Rather, it makes an unsupported claim that there is no reason why people shouldn't.
Thus, we see that the resolution in and of itself should be negated. In addition, we see that Pro has offered us no reasoning whatsoever to affirm this resolution. Thus, you ought to vote con.
I'd like to direct you to view these articles written that explain in great length how foreign music exploration improves vocabulary, retention, and recollection skills. It even aids in the challenge of learning foreign languages fluently. Those are significant benefits, are they not?
Secondly, Pro has not demonstrated that anyone, let alone everyone, has an obligation to learn music in foreign languages. Though it might be beneficial, it is not obligatory as the word "should" implies. In Pro's last point, Pro made the claim that the ideas of beneficial and obligatory are not mutually exclusive, but this does not demonstrate that one entails the other. Thus, Pro has failed to uphold Pro's burden of proof. Vote con.

Reasons for voting decision: I enjoy listening to foreign music, especially Japanese and Korean. Con completely and inexplicably mistook the resolution and the purpose of the debate. Con's argument makes no practical sense.
