What’s the need?
The world debating forum.com global online debating platform is going to be revolutionary because it allows people to debate all over the world, with all kinds of schools and all levels of individuals debating each other on all kinds of subjects. WDF will empower debaters to interact real-time worldwide in any of the major world languages.
For example, if you’re a South Korean university student speaking Korean into your laptop and you’re in a debate with students from a US university, your spoken words will come to your US counterparts in English, or any other language you or they choose, and their English will come to you in Mandarin – or any other language you choose, including native English.
