Young adults learned valuable debating skills at the ‘Public Speaking and Debate’ workshop held recently at Qatar National Library.
Organised with QatarDebate, a member of Qatar Foundation, the workshop helped participants — who ranged in age from 12-18 years — conquer their self-doubt when it comes to public speaking and convey their opinions in a persuasive way.
In a statement, the library noted that the workshop was well-attended.
Participant Firas Qidwai said, “Whenever I prepare for a debating session, I visit the library to collect information about the topics of focus. It is giving debaters and those who are seeking information easy access to lots of resources and helps us hone our research skills.”
Nirat Pai, another attendee, added: “Our debating coaches recommend we use the books and databases available at the library to prepare our arguments ahead of each of our debates. It has everything that a student or a debater can ask for to win a debate.”
