Debate Mate is an enjoyable club which doesn’t only help me with my debating skills, but also with my English. This is because the way you structure a debate is almost identical to how you structure a paragraph or piece of writing – point, evidence, explain, link (PEEL). Also, it has helped me with my confidence because we have to stand up in front of everyone to say our speech. The mentors, John and Imogen, are really great, answering every question calmly, clearly and kindly, so we feel comfortable asking any question.
