I am a college student who debated in high school. I like when debaters fully engage with each other's arguments; I am impressed when you can situate your opponent's arguments and evidence in the landscape of your own. (i.e., Beyond just saying that they are wrong, explain to me why your arguments/evidence are better.)

I don't have a preference about your speaking speed, but I do think it's impolite to speak much faster than your opponent if that hinders your opponent's understanding of your arguments. This should make sense given that I want you to engage with each other.

Heads up: I am not very good at timing or giving time signals, but I will do my best. You may find it helpful to time yourself. Not required of course; only time yourself if you think that would be helpful.
