Since its founding in 1997,“FLTRP·ETIC Cup”National English Debating Competition has become a high-standard and large-scale event. For three consecutive years, it has been included in the“China University Innovation Talent Cultivation and Discipline Events Rankings”released by the Higher Education Society of the Ministry of Education. The emphasis on educational outcomes through competition has received recognition in the academic community. Focusing on current affairs, the competition topics cover various disciplines and are closely related to debaters’lives. It not only tests the debaters’English proficiency but also places high demands on their knowledge, value judgment, critical thinking, improvisation, mentality, and teamwork, effectively guiding students to cultivate cultural confidence and enhance their spiritual strength through thoughtful thinking and debating.

In this year’s competition, all participating teams went through 5 round-robin matches, with 4 teams participating in each round. Our debaters competed with students from other universities such as Northeast Normal University, Tianjin University, and Dalian University of Technology. Faced with strong opponents, the two students made meticulous preparation and researched the debate topics before the competition. On the stage, they responded quickly and argued logically. The debate topics were announced 15 minutes before each match, and each participant had 7 minutes to present their viewpoints based on their stance and the content of the debate topic. After each round, the judges provided feedback and evaluation.
