...rojizo-barroso de aquel cocker spaniel que con ojos lastimeros te miraba desde el lateral de la calle asfaltada con escarcha blanca en la fría mañana de invierno (ZzzzZZZzzzzzz). Lo que no rellenen las palabras, que lo completen las pausas. Nunca hables demasiado rápido. Si tiendes a hacerlo, inserta micropausas después de cada frase (0,5 – 1 segundos). Son muchos los Grandes que han ensalzado las virtudes del silencio. Por ejemplo Borges, que decía aquello de “no hables a menos que puedas mejorar el silencio”, o Mario Benedetti con su “hay pocas cosas tan ensordecedoras como el silencio”. Pero para terminar, yo comparto contigo esta, de Calderón de la Barca: “el silencio es retórica de amantes”. Javier Plaza Miranda, formador de la Sociedad de Debate de la UAO CEU....

...Debate The technique of persuasive argument is a skill that you must acquire in order to participate in a successful debate. The art of being eloquent, choosing your words wisely, and being able to think on your feet, encompasses many of the components that any debater should be able to handle. In our first debate last week, we got off to a bit of an awkward, slow start. A few of us were confused on the format, when to speak, and what to say next. After several people went up and read their paper, it was time for rebuttals. Certain people had no problem getting up in front of the class, and vehemently stating their position on the topic at hand. Once we were able to rebuttal with more ease, the debate went on a little more smoothly. In the middle of the debate, people didn’t want to end the argument as early as we did. We began to think more critically, coming up with better counterarguments and ideas. Considering this was our first debate, I would have to give it a six out of ten. Both teams were strong in some areas, and weak in others. Over time we will become stronger debaters and be able to develop and hone our skills. As we use the middle school format more often, we will become use to it and be prepared with a closing speech from both sides and a stronger opening argument. As captain for the first time and for the rest fo the class, we will be able to strategically plan who will speak next in the middle of the debate. We can send up our stronger members for some......

...SCHOOL: EUCHARISTIC HEART OF JESUS MODEL COLLEGE, ASA-DAM, ILORIN. NAME: NWAKILE CHILOTAM MADELEINE CLASS: SS 202 SUBJECT: ENGLISH LANGUAGE TOPIC: YOU ARE A SPEAKER IN A DEBATE ON THE TOPIC DEMOCRACY IS THE BEST SYSTEM OF GORVERMENT FOR AFRICA. WRITE YOUR SPEECH FOR OR AGAINST IT. DATE: 9TH JANUARY, 2015. DEBATE: DEMOCRACY IS THE BEST SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT FOR AFRICA Good day the Honourable Moderator, Impartial Panel of Judges, Accurate Timekeeper, Co-debaters, My Fellow Students, Ladies and Gentlemen. I am Nwakile Chilotam. I am here to propose the motion which states that “Democracy is the best system of government for Africa”. Before I go on, I will like to give a simple definition of the word, “Democracy”. Democracy is a governmental term which according to late Abraham Lincoln means “the government of the people, by the people and for the people. In other words it is a government where everyone has an equal right to choose their leaders. There is no doubt that democracy is the best system of government not only for Africa but for the whole world at large. I am going to prove this with the following points. Democratic governance involves election of leaders, freedom of speech, freedom of press, accountability, rule of law, equal justice among others and all these are bought about by the power given to the people. It gives people the power to choose who represents them. Democracy gives the citizens of Africa the chance to get involved in governance and in......

Phrases

..."Broke" is an informal way of saying "broken."  Long time ago broken was defined as "having no money" or to "become bankrupt, to fail."  Although the meaning long time ago meant bankrupt, it is used regularly just to express you don't have any money at that moment. "I'm flat broke." "I can't afford to buy that television.  I'm totally broke." "I can't pay my bills.  I'm broke." Beats Me Meaning/Usage: To not know; to not understand Explanation: Not many resources on this phrase, but could come from beating information out of someone.  When someone is holding back information, they would get beat until they tell the answer.  In this case, the person could be saying that even if I was beaten, I wouldn't know.  Therefore, it became popular to say "beats me" to indicate you do not know. "It beats me how they finished before us." "Beats me why he was so mean to you." "Beats me how she found out we did it." I Don't Buy it Meaning/Usage: Disagree; to not be convinced Explanation: This phrase comes from a popular way of getting agreement, which is "buy in."  For example, a company director can say, "we need buy in from all the board members to proceed."  In this statement, "buy in" is getting agreement.  Therefore, if you "don't buy it," then you are not agreeing. "He said he didn't do it but I don't buy it." "Their prices are supposed to be better but I don't buy it." "She said she was sorry but I don't buy it." Keep Your Cool Meaning/Usage: To act......

In my left side are the against we have Ronin, Christopher and clarries. So let’s get started. Pro: (xyrah) Accepting differences in people leads to harmonious relationship definitely because as we accept that we are different from each other we are starting to build up a good relationship with others. Well a good relationship can lead great ideas, creativity and achievement. Against: (clarries) I have nothing against your point; however did you ever think already that if we treat each other equally it can lead more to a harmonious relationship? Against: Definitely, that is also what I’m thinking because as we accept that we are all equal, like the gender equality what boys can do girls can also do. With that I think we can achieve a more harmonious relationship if we accept that we are all equal. Pro: Well yes I get your point but we really need to accept that we are different from each other. We have different capabilities, likes and dislikes, different lifestyles and others. We are really...

They must: * Define the motion of the debate. * Present their case. * Respond to arguments of the opposing first faction. * Maintain their relevance during the debate. The Opening Government team has the semi-divine right of definition, preventing the opposition from challenging their definition of the motion unless it is either a truism or clearly unreasonable.
