Hi my old friend.

there are mere sentences to say: debate can happen in any language, And in this case, English. Because the actual range of actual languages of the debates are so broad, It barely qualify as a language. I mean, You don't say poetry is one specific language right?

sure i might as well learn the grammar and spelling of he debate language specifically if it is different from english and it actually exists, But i guess who would actually learn a language that basically could be a dialect of any language and can only be used for arguing?

ah i believe you misread, When i refer to debate as a language, I'm using metaphor, A very common practice in the English language, What it means in this context is that communicating through means of debate, Or argument, Where there is a back and forth communication style with both parties trying to pick holes in each others arguments, Is the best for learning. Now i say this because if you question an opponents debate it's because you asked yourself that question and if they do answer it readily maybe you learn something, Or not i guess it depends on how you like to debate.

Ah, So you do refer debate as a language art, I misread.

i know that debating is sort of good, But just to say the debating community is a bit disrespectful. See bruh101, Cumbucketslut, Sickintheheadz, And many many more.

but however debating isn't the best for learning. Like you've been in school right, If you were in school you should know most classes doesn't involve debating. Most classes in English Language Arts consists of like reading books, Discussions(not actual debates), And etc. If debating is the "best" then why does almost no class actually utilizes it at its full form?

i have an answer, Because it is not the best for learning. Of course i agree with you about what's good, But sadly it is not the ultimate best. I am not saying debate is bad just for correction.

reading would BETTER than debating according to me and my education. I have nothing to decide what is the ultimately the best because i am not an english teacher(i said in my random debate). But what reading does that are better than debating, I will refute.

" Where there is a back and forth communication style with both parties trying to pick holes in each others arguments, Is the best for learning. "
while excessively used, It may create skeptical roles within the brain to trust nobody, Because you are constantly trying to disagreeing with the others. I am like this, If you would like to ask(you are seeing this right now). That is why reading is better. It is in unison and it helps you actually trust more than being skeptical. It allows you to trust contemporary and historical people.

"Now i say this because if you question an opponents debate it's because you asked yourself that question and if they do answer it readily maybe you learn something, Or not i guess it depends on how you like to debate. "
thanks for the clarification. But if you read a book that's famous enough, There is no misunderstanding. There will wither be a caption note or there are none on the book that are clarified enough to let any literate human beings understand. In debate you just did say that the language is not an actual LANGUAGE but it is not like in the first round to prevent misunderstanding. But if you didn't we will be skeptical enough that we will forfeit on purpose. Because this, Books are more perfect than debates. I know that debating is not like really bad, But if i were ought to choose i would say books are more perfect.

and i don't know what's the most perfect. I just argued that debate is not the best way for learning.

But a classroom is a place for debate is it not i mean the form of debate is different, As is the form of debate used in martial arts, Its a form of verbal sparring, A challenge written in words, The teacher asks a question and you do your best to provide an answer, And in a-lot of ways is that not how a debate works the instigator asks a question and provides an answer, Then the challenger questions that and provides there own answer, Mightier then the sword only due to the power of knowledge, For the true hope of a debate is that both parties learn something, Or at-least learn to new questions to ask if not others themselves for you never know if you'll need to defend against such a response next time, And as for the "disrespectful" as you put it, Don't they present a challenge to you? If you disagree with a view and your a debater, Debate. I mean the worst that happens is you walk away feeling a little better for proving a point in the face of adversity.

with these words i agree with you, But remember nothing can dominate the earth's whole market. Like you can't say that this thing is the best. Nothing is the absolute best. Anyways i accepted it as a proof of that debate art isn't a language spoken, And that is a deep saying of i have 0 evidence.

sure debate is a good learning way, But is is not a LANGUAGE. It is a FORM OF LANGUAGE ART, Dependent on another language and not of its own.

Reasons for voting decision: I'm not sure if Con's final round was a concession? It was unclear, so I have assumed it wasn't. Pro has a tough BoP to prove that the language of debate is "best" and she did not meet it. As Con pointed out, there are other methods more popular in education settings. I think s&g is obvious. Hopefully, the voting police are no longer around. I will explain if asked to.
