[WORDSTORM 2014] Round 3 DEBATE: How did they survive , strive and shine?

"Just when you think our contestant’s talent could not get any bette, it..did"

Have you ever struggled in a debate?, have you ever wished you could master the skill of a great debater? If you are seeking for a great tips and trick on how to do that, why not learn from the best?

Given that, we are now showing you the brief recap of what happened in round 3 and the best of the best contestants who survived through the round 2 to enter this round with such confidence and talent.

What can you learn from them?, check this out!

1) Be prepared

You all may know that preparation takes up a huge percentage in success. And we feel that our contestants truly took this contest seriously manifested by how well they prepare. Some arrived early before the shift to go through again their material. Some were observing their judges, their examination rooms to get familiar with the scene so that he could gain more confidence. Some even brought their supporters with them, like mommy, brothers, friends..etc

2) Think fast – think critically

You have to be there to fully appreciate their skills. Imagine you are given a difficult debate topic, assigned to support or against a statement without your choice , 90 seconds to prepare, how would you survive THAT?? But yet our contestants still managed to protect their opinion, rebutted their opponents and handle questions from the judges, not to mention that they literally had no time to prepare, they had to instantly respond to everything. It was like either you think fast and critically or you go home.

3) Have a strategy

Of course you will get nowhere if you don’t have a plan, a strategy , especially if your opponent is just as good as you are. From a quick look at the contestant’s draft paper, we realized how skillful the contestants are. There were mind mapping, tables, organization between supporting arguments, rebuttals, counter arguments..etc.

4) Always remain calm

We know it’s a lot going on in a heat up examination room with judges who were constantly grading and judging, with opponents who were always trying to find any weakness in arguments. Losing confidence is understandable. However and obviously, the contestants are not just like normal people. Even when the stake was high, their opponent seemed to have the upper hand, contestant always remained calm and confident.

5) The spirit of a stellar debater

Undoubtly, some heat up moments here and there are unavoidable. Nevertheless, they did show respect towards each other. They all waited before the other finished to continue their arguments, they also acknowledged the other's good points and sharp counter arguments. There were pairs who see their opponents upset, couldn't help but to give them hugs and comforts Smile Just wow !
