My name is Sooji and I am 16 years old. My interests are shopping and watching movies. My disinterests are solving math problems and exercising. Debate is about expressing thoughts about a topic and giving reasonable responses. The qualities of a good debater are conviction about one's side and telling the truth with personal thoughts. One should respect other debaters with different viewpoints. I joined the class because I feel like I am forgetting English and I really miss people who speak it because I cannot talk on the phone with friends (e.g. phone bill). I want to improve my writing, speaking, and reading skills (vocabulary maybe). So, basically, everything. I do not have certain things I want to debate.
