Debating Tournament promotes free speech. There are many championships where each team that represents their school, college or university can debate on any selected topic given to them.
Most of the times, such tournaments are conducted at inter school, inter university or even with other participating countries. Both the participating teams are given similar topics where they have to debate on a particular issue. Those teams that continuously debate without losing are the winners. Some of the world famous debating championships are ‘English as a Second Language (ESL)’. During such championships, those students participating in ESL must be coming from families whose primary language is not English and who does not attend school where English is a primary language. Only such students are eligible to participate in a debating tournament.
It is necessary that these students prepare themselves before the final event to ensure that they are fully prepared for debate.
