15 teachers attended the above course in Jitra. The Johor team consisted of Shanmuganathan, Lee Leng Song and yours truly for English. Hj Yahya Shuib came for BM. We were trained by Mr Mohamad Latif from International Islamic University and Mr Mohan Veerasamy, a seasoned adjudicator. Theory was followed by video sessions of IIUM debaters which I found inspiring. I was here to finetune my knowledge and skills and I must complement Mr Latif for his expertise in the area. Having judged and taken part in world debating championships before, he had plenty to share and learn I did! Except for the acommodation, everything else was fine.
