Should I encourage her to do so? Me and my friend from school often have disagreements on the latest stuff going on. I thought we should join the team in our college and maybe we can learn more skills when discussing these issues. Also I notice she seems to have a natural talent for it, more than me and it looks like she might be made for something like this. But she refuses to believe me that she has a talent for it. I taped some of our conversations. I uploaded them below, it was on Facebook speakerphone, I used my phone to let the video record while we talked. One is about the refugee issues and one is about whether or not it was bad for that football player to disrespect the flag or not (the one thats about 20 minutes). I started recording in the middle for that one, so it will not have the beginnings. But listen to it and tell me if you think she is especially more natural for debate. If the majority says yes, I will play this back to her and say, "I told you so!"

Haven't looked at the links but you should definitely join the debate team. Learning argumentative skills is very helpful in life.
