12 Apr SUStech Student Debaters Performed Outstandingly in the 20th FLTRP National English Debating Competition South Regional
On the 9th April, the 20th FLTRP National English Debating Competition South Regional drew to a close. This is the first time that SUSTech participated in this competition and our debaters performed outstandingly. Our SUSTech team, Wang Jiuzhou and Xu Yizi, led by Dr. Liu Lisha from CLE ranked 24 among the 111 teams and gained the Second Prize.
There are in total five rounds. Debaters only have 20 minutes to prepare without any researches after the motion is released. These five motions are set in different fields which require the competitors to have a wide range of knowledge.
Debating is really different from public speaking. It not only requires you an advanced English level, but also a clear logic and the ability to analyze various issues.
Finally, we sincerely congratulate teacher-coach Liu Lisha and the debaters Wang Jiuzhou and Xu Yizi. In addition, we hope that more and more students at SUSTech can actively participate in this debating competition in order to challenge and improve themselves.
