Come argue with us!
We focus on teamwork, out-of-the-box thinking and the art of persuasion as they mature into passionate, articulate adults.
Debating brings together a range of essential skills that are critical for success in work, school, relationships and more. With the ability to discuss ideas rather than individuals, formulate cogent arguments, listen honestly and to respect a wide range of views, our debaters are poised to become the leaders of tomorrow.
Teenage debaters become confident adults
Speaking from the podium, debaters experience the value of their thoughts and ideas - critical elements to build self-esteem.
Teenage debaters form meaningful, mature relationships as adults
Active listening and using logic and reason instead of emotion and passion to argue a point are the bedrocks of healthy relationships.
Teenage debaters become sought-out professionals as adults
Is there any area of professional life in which a confident, well-spoken individual with a passion for ideas and engagement wouldn’t be considered a hot catch?
Teenage debaters have fun!
Debate fosters a lively, enthusiastic group dynamic. Disagreeing without becoming disagreeable creates a relaxed atmosphere that is conducive to laughter and good-natured teasing.

Whatever your goal, we have the right package for you.

Hi! I’m Andye.
Founder, Director of Efrat Debate Workshops
After a 20-year career as a journalist, the cynicism of the media industry had started to corrode my outlook on the world.
Efrat Debate Workshops is the antidote. Showing young people how to talk about ideas rather than personalities, how to disagree without being disagreeable and how to do it all in fluent, polished English is not only the most important professional role I’ve ever had. It’s the most enjoyable one.
