Students Testimonials

Here’s what our past students had to say about their training experience with us!

Throughout my experience at MIDP, I’ve gained a wide set of skills that extend far beyond debating. The most valuable one by far has been the ability to present my thoughts with confidence. It has also given me the opportunity to explore and further my passion for poetry. Learning at MIDP has greatly advanced my ability as a writer and a speaker, and I am truly thankful for the leaps of improvement it has helped me achieve.
TEIOH NUAN NING
National Debate Champion (2020), National Poetry Slam Champion (2019)
When I was younger, I struggled to convert my thoughts into words. MIDP has helped me not just in finding the confidence to speak in front of a crowd, but also invaluable analytical skills that have been crucial in my academic studies. My training with MIDP constantly challenged me to do better and provided the skills that would not have been acquired through the usual schooling systems. This resulted in me landing leadership positions in school clubs and local organisations.
YIT XIANG WONG
Best Delegate Award, Oxford Model United Nations, Singapore (2019)
Joining MIDP in 2017 was one of the best decisions I’ve made during high school. Over the months and years of training, I’ve gained valuable insight into a diverse spectrum of political, economic, social and moral issues from all around the world. MIDP kick-started my journey in competitive debating, and above all, stimulated my desire to better understand the world.
JONATHAN CHIN
Top 10 Best Speakers in the World, World Schools Debating Championship (2020)
Having been part of the first batch of students at MIDP under the new academic structure, I feel that I am qualified to wholeheartedly recommend MIDP classes to any aspiring debaters. Without formative training from Emellia Shariff and Mifzal Mohamed, I probably would not have become the competitive debater I am today. Classes are fun, engaging and above all super educational; please do give them a try!
LEE EE JENN
Team Malaysia World Schools Debating Championship (2020)
My experience at MIDP has been one of the most vital to my overall development as a person. It has given me the wisdom and maturity beyond my age, while improving my ability to deal with real world situations. Learning here has also greatly increased my proficiency in English, helping me explore other passions such as poetry and creative writing. I have learnt much more than just debating, and I’m certain that I would not be half the person I am today had it not been for MIDP.

Awards & Graduation

Late November

Top students will be given awards, and students who pass a certain level will be graduated to the next level. All students will be given a certificate and report card.

Why are competitions important?
Competitions provide a platform for students to apply the skills outside of the classroom. A competitive environment is a great place to build character, instill growth mindset, patience and resilience, while widening their network and meeting like-minded friends!
