    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because of its valuable teachings, and extremely entertaining atmosphere. Public speaking is an essential skill regardless of your desired career and this class provides the foundation for you to not able to speak to an audience effectively, but also how to write a speech with which your audience can connect. This class, and the professor, allow you to grow your confidence in public speaking and teach you how to overcome the common anxiety attached to it.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight of this course, for me, were the impromptu speeches. We received a topic, and had one minute to deliver an improvisational speech on it. It teaches you to think quickly and work an audience without any prepared material so that when you do have prepared and memorized material, it seems incredibly simple and easy. I learned that you never have to be nervous about what you're giving a speech on so long as you believe in what you are saying and care about the message you're delivering.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Give yourself plenty of time to write your speeches. After finishing one, make sure you have time to sleep on it for a night, you'll find there's a lot you want to change as you learn more about your topic and come closer to the time of delivering your speech. Never try to write the speech the day you're supposed to present, you'll feel rushed and insecure with your material.
