Master the power of the Spoken Word

Singapore is one of the most renowned nations in the international debate circuit, having racked up victories at the World Schools Debating Championships and more. At the local level, hundreds of students train and compete on a near-daily basis, forging, over time, the dynamic interscholastic debate culture that pervades Singapore today.

So what exactly does it take to stand out within this community of dedicated orators? More than eloquent words thrown haphazardly at unwitting opponents, debate is a true test of first-rate intelligence. Not only are you required to argue your side of the story, but also to predict and refute the other – a level of critical thinking that simply isn’t covered in school curricula.

Masterminded by one of Singapore's top debate coaches, our Debate and Reasoning program will grant you both the analytical prowess and rhetorical flair you’ll need to thrive in local competition circuits and beyond. Even more importantly, the cutting-edge research strategies and communication tactics you’ll develop are the very skills required to thrive on college campuses, professional spaces, and beyond.
