Two different Debating Styles: BPS and OPD

There are two main debating styles in use today in German language debating clubs and at tournaments in Germany, Austria and Switzerland: Open Parliamentary Debate (OPD) and British Parliamentary Style (BPS).

In order to make sure our members are familiar with both systems we primarily use OPD during the weekly German debates and BPS during the English debates.
