    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Public Speaking is essential for everything you do in life- being able to communicate and understand those around you. This class prepares you for that and my teacher, Dr. Mathis really was amazing at teaching us but also making my class come together and help each other during this course. It may sounds easy but you do have to work hard in this class, but as long as you give your best efforts, the rest falls into place. Because of this class I now have many friends and study habits that will help me succeed the rest of my time at Auburn.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are definitely having such a great teacher who is willing to help, having a class who supports you and wants you to succeed, and also the information you gain for your long term future. In this class, I learned how to control my anxieties about public speaking. I learned how to cultivate a speech and different types of speeches, and also I learned why public speaking is important. This class taught me how to work well with others by giving constructive criticism and being able to study with other people. Now, I have many tools to continue helping me in my other classes throughout my years.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice! Giving speeches isn't as easy as it seems, and the majority of your grade comes from the speeches you give. Practice to your roommates, classmates, and definitely go see and practice with your teacher. This course is great because it is very applicable to everyone's future but it has a misconception of being an easy A. You can get an A if you work hard. Keep the saying in mind, "Practice makes perfect." This is the key to doing well in the class.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This was a very easy A and I also enjoyed making up my own speeches.

    Course highlights:

    I didn't really learn much but the point of the class is to better your communication skills and also to feel more comfortable talking in front of people.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I wouldn't recommend waiting last minute to figure out what you are going to say. Also put in some effort. It'll reflect in your grade even if you are shy.
