“Speak-up” Club

Head to Head Debate

“Speak-up” Club truly believes that debating skill is a necessary tool that leads towards personal and professional success. To debate, participants must analyze complex issues of ethics, law, politics, science… it teaches rhetoric, and the ability to stand up and speak up in front of an audience. It demands confidence in one’s position. It requires persistence, perseverance, and courage.  Thus, the Club decided that it would be great to create a new debating culture at the American University of Armenia and give students the opportunity to be part of that culture.

Unlike, other clubs that organize team debates our club tries to promote completely another type of debates. These are the debates that two individuals participate in. The debate format that we chose to practice in our club, due to our research, is practiced also at Oxford University.
