• Debates helps your speaking skills

    Improves self confidence: standing up in front of others and trying to persuade them takes a lot of confidence. You could be making a speech on a Thursday night, or it could be in a competitive debate against amazing people from across the country. Either way, you have to think quickly on your feet being aware of your style, content and where you’re going with the argument. It is a great feeling when you can stand up in front of loads of people, speaking about something for five or even seven minutes and it all goes well.

    Helps essay writing skills: when trying to present an argument in a debate it is very similar to trying to present an argument in an essay. It makes you think which are the best angles with which to tackle a question, how to make each bit different and how to link one into the other to keep a flow. Regular practice improves you considerably.

    Question your beliefs: by being made to argue a point of view you may not hold it makes you appreciate the many qualities each side of the argument has and maybe even appreciate something in a whole new way. For example, has integration of communities really worked?

    Improves general knowledge: debates can be on a wide range of topics and by watching others speak about topics will give you insights into subjects you might otherwise not find out about. For example, do you know how the UN works, or the many things around the world it does?

    Lawyers: practice makes perfect and when it comes to mooting then all the practice with public speaking will help. Debating will also give you a wider knowledge, focusing less on precise legal matters and helping develop a wider philosophical understanding of a more diverse range of matters. Alternatively, if you are not into mooting then debating is the great alternative where you can still develop the skills that employers are looking for.

    When you debate with other people, what you do is not only speaking but also listening. Even if you do not know how to participate in debates, you can learn it by paying attention how people demonstrate their thoughts and persuade each other.

    I believe that debate has/is helping me with my speaking skills. Why? Well, before I joined my high school debate club, i wasn't able to really speak out, or speak in front of a crowd none the less.

  • Debate does not:

    There are multiple types of communication and articulation is rarely aided through debate specifically because argumentation as a process usually takes place over the course of several days so instead of learning how to speak in an active environment you develop skills like critical thinking, research, and contextual fluidity. Debate is not good for learning how to talk to other people or how to speak more effectively.
