From October 26th to November 2nd, the"Veritas Second Debate Contest" organized by the English Department of Veritas and actively participated by all grades came to an end completely. There were two sessions in total, and eight teams have signed up to participate. The resolve is "A Spacerace between China and the United States would cause more harm or more benefit.".
As the saying goes: "One minute on stage takes ten years off stage", the same is true for debate. It is not just the ten minutes on the stage that determines the victory of the debate. A lot of preparation and drills before the game are especially important. All debaters in this competition were well prepared. On the premise that some students have fully collected their own team’s arguments, they can also stand on the other side's position and imagine the other side’s arguments and carefully prepare counterpoints and materials; some students sacrificed their rest and entertainment time to perfect their arguments.
It is precisely because of the meticulous preparation and tacit cooperation of the students that they have presented a wonderful debate game for us. This battle without gunpowder smoke was extremely fierce. The two teams held their own opinions and charged into the battle. The conflicts and collisions of opinions produced sparks of ideas, which sublimated their ideas. At the same time, their arguments brought thinking and inspiration to the audience.
Winning or losing is only a form. We believe that through this debate, students can gain the ability to look at problems from multiple angles and make positive breakthroughs in difficult situations, and the mentality of taking the rough with the smooth. What's more, what the students learned from it is a team spirit of solidarity, mutual support and trust.
There are winners and losers in the competition, but there is no end to learning. We believe that through every competition, the students will be able to hone good mindset and calmly face every challenge they encounter on the way to growth.
