English Debating at Ulm University

What is debating?

Debating is not just argument for argument’s sake, it is a real conversation about competing perspectives and current affairs. The debate has two sides – a proposition side supporting the resolution, and an opposition side refuting the resolution. This is what makes debating so compelling – together in teams, we defend and attack certain beliefs to score for the final decision in favour or against at the end of each debate.

Before beginning each debate, we will start with simple practice sessions and the basics of debating strategy, as well as how to structure your speech. There is a strong aspect of competition in a debate, but we will help you learn how to deal with it in a sovereign and confident way!
