About Mandarin Debating Team

UM Mandarin Debating Team (UMMDT) is distinguished as the mainstay of the Chinese debating field. It was firstly formed in 1986 and joined the 1st Asian Inter-Varsity Debate Contest in Singapore in the same year. 

The team was reformed in 2001 and aims to provide students a platform for fostering critical thinking, enhancing debating skills, as well as the opportunity for debating exchange. Over the past decade, the team has made fruitful achievements and more than that, UMMDT takes debating as an educational activity to promote the idea of “Debating with Sincerity” and encourage members to surpass themselves and serve the society.

Aside from the regular debating trainings and competitions, the most important responsibility of the team is to promote Chinese debate and make Macao as a highland for Chinese Debate.
