By the middle of the semester, various contests were in full swing, including the debate competition, an invariably popular event in Wuhan University. Let’s shine a spotlight on the debaters to explore how a debate competition is conducted.

Ⅰ. Meticulous preparation with great effort

Debaters often prepare for the debate at least one week in advance. Apart from preparing materials and thinking about the arguments by themselves, they also spend two or three hours a day discussing and debating with teammates and coaches, engaging in considerable deliberation of every sentence and every argument.
