1) There are no limitations or requirements on the number of arguments. However, an ideal number would be about 3. You should be able to analyse these arguments fully and support them with examples, if necessary.
2) First speaker guides the arguments and sets the debate for the team, as you stated. They also begin the debate by stating their first argument(s). The third speaker analyses the important \'issues\' or \'clashes\' that have occurred in the debate. In other words, he or she is going to compare the arguments and rebuttals given by each team and present to the judge how his/her own team won those issues based on better logic (and what that logic was), better supporting evidence, and etcetera.
>Hello? I am an elementary school student participating the competition. I have a question about the roles of the speakers. I heard that first speaker guides the arguements the team will gonna represent. Next, second speaker explains and gives detail of the arguements. Then, what is third speaker doing? I know that reply(last) speaker summarizes the arguements what they said. I am really curious. I wanna get the answer as soon as possible. Oh, I have one more question. How many arguements do we have to make? Isn\\\'t it limited?
>When will you answer? Please answer as soonas possible!!!
