According to Liu Xin and Feng Yanling, coaches for the debate contest, the English debate contest of university students is an important event to test the students’ command of English, which not only fosters the thinking ability of contestants, but also cultivates their comprehensive ability to use English. The two contestants said, English majors cannot be confined to learning knowledge from books, but also should be equipped with a global vision, practice and accumulate more and keep improving comprehensive and practical abilities.
