Mandarin Debating Team

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University Mandarin Debating Team (PolyU MDT) was established in 2003 among a group of students fond of debating. The Mandarin Debating Team has been receiving coaching support from teaching staff of the Department of Chinese and Bilingual Studies (CBS).  Since September 2016, the Team has been formally registered under Office of Student Development for guidance and funding support.  With the dedicated and professional inputs from CBS coach, the Team made accomplishments in both local and regional competitions.  Intervarsity activities and friendly matches with other universities in the Chinese mainland and overseas are organized over the summer and winter breaks. Regular team training is conducted every Friday evening to enhance the debating skills of our members.
