Take this opportunity to learn from fellow students around the world! This competition allows your child to learn from other debaters and gain an exposure to critical thinking and public speaking.
The two-day Round-Robin debate competition for ages 7 – 12 will consist of 5 Rounds of high-quality debates. Prizes and certificates will be given to all participants, and there will be a chance to receive top-notch feedback after every match!
This competition is held annually in December, suitable for children ages 7 – 12, no debating experience required.
Research, reasoning, and even public speaking skills are just a few of the many benefits that come with learning debating. From planning your argument – even if it’s one you disagree with – to choosing your words with care, debating can prepare you to take on any challenge life may present to you.
This competition allows your child to have fun while learning the concepts of critical thinking, structuring their thoughts and ideas, and improving their confidence through public speaking.
As a debater, your child would be exposed to critical thinking, improving on their research skills, articulation, emotional control & public speaking from a young age. These invaluable skills would stay with your child and help them to grow and excel throughout their school and adult working life.
Learn foundational concepts and ideas that will come in handy in life and in essay topics, under the guidance of our knowledgeable coaches. Students from all levels can join in to learn about age-appropriate topics, as well as develop their individual critical thinking and argumentation skills.
Join our physical debate classes weekly at Agora Colearning classrooms.
Alternatively, you may opt for the virtual experience by enrolling in our online debate classes conducted via Zoom.
