Ages 10-11 — MAXIMUM 10 STUDENTS
Why debating? Debate is the fastest growing ECA globally because of its ability to transform young people into global people. It merges the five essential skills of public speaking, critical thinking, logical analysis, world issue awareness and personal organization.
In this Introductory Debate class, students interact with each other and the coach as equals. The emphasis is not on what you think, but rather, how you think. It teaches practise and patience along with tangible skills of fielding questions and speaking under pressure.
This course teaches the World Schools Debating style of debating. Students will learn argumentation development, speaking style, rebuttal strategy, speaker roles and case building. The course is tailored to the strength and weakness of the individual groups and no two lessons are ever the same! Every class will feature a real debate with opportunities for students to speak and receive personal feedback on their performance.
This is an excellent class for beginner debaters who want to pursue debate seriously in secondary school and students who are just curious about debate. You will not find a better debate class anywhere else in Hong Kong!
