Debate is a great way to improve the skills that you have in life. It improves the stage fright that some people, like me, might have. I overcame this fear by speaking in front of people.
How does debate otherwise improve your life skills? It requires you to plan a speech. This improves the way you think by teaching you to have structure and organize your ideas, while also developing analytical and research skills. Furthermore, debate helps with quick thinking by encouraging you to think outside of the box and be prepared for any gaps in your knowledge. It also pushes you out of your comfort zone. Debate can improve your emotional control by requiring you to maintain an element of composure and poise in front of your audience. Moreover, it improves your presentation skills.
In conclusion, despite the fact that some people might think that debate is boring or too intimidating, it actually helps you with a lot of skills and can take your entire mind somewhere you’ve never been before.
