Although I learned a lot about the format of a debate, that’s not all I learned about a debate. Debating requires a lot of preparation and happens when people don’t agree about an issue. If you think debates are easy, you’re wrong! They require careful planning and listening. To respond to a question, you need to plan your thoughts on what their opinion is. All of these things can help me in the real world. It could help me when I’m arguing with somebody or if I’m in a real debate. I guess I learned more than I realized.
