There is no better word than the one that convinces you. Be yourself.

Fernando Ónega

Speaking is the privilege of the human being; to debate is to seek the reason and, with it, to find the truth.

Nico Abad

Remember that, as Paul Auster said, the key is “form and coherence, structure, rhythm and surprise”.

Esther Vaquero

Prepare your arguments and prepare to listen and understand the logic of your opponent. To convince, it is as important to speak as to know how to listen.

Jorge Gallardo

Co-director of Grado de Comunicación de la UCJC and deputy director of Espejo Público

The best argument is the one that can not be found in Google.

Carme Chaparro

We always communicate with an intention. Look for it. And then persuade – with all your weapons – your audience to think, feel or do that.

María José Sáez

Journalist and presenter de informativos en Antena 3


Believe in what you say but do not believe more than anyone else. Humility is the basis of communication.

Testimonies

Slide "The truth is that none of us expected so much from this tournament. We pretended to meet people, to know some controversial topics of the moment, but we never thought that a league of debate would help us so much. Once the tournament was over, I realized that all this experience has made us understand better what communication is, try to be heard and convince the rest with your ideas. We now understand the importance of the word, and understand that anyone can and should use it to get closer to what they want. " David Bailón, member of the I League champion team, Colegio Internacional SEK Ciudalcampo Slide "The only way I can describe my experience in the first debate league is by thanking them for being able to participate in an event like this, personally I think the debate is one of those school activities that should be encouraged in all educational centers and, thanks to this debate tournament, I, as well as my teammates together with the other present teams, have been able to carry out this activity in a very good way, during the tournament we have been able to do what we like most and enjoy the company from other people who share our same hobby, both in the purely competitive aspect and in the training the tournament in general has been great, since not only have we competed, but we have also learned with the feedback of the judges after the rounds In general I can not be happier with the course of the tournament and with the experiences lived in it. " Julia Pantín, best speaker I Liga Nacional de Debate, Colexio Manuel Peleteiro
