    This class was tough.

    Any one person who has struggled with speaking in public settings or has a more reserved personality would really benefit from such class due to the fact that you are asked to speak

    From this experience I was able to learn more personal things about myself as to how I speak and how I present myself. From that I was able to gain knowledge of the importance of speaking correctly and through the excecises I was able to gain confidence! My highlight was speaking for the first time in front of my classmates!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course equips students with basic skills needed for speaking effectively in public. How to prepare a speech outline, reduce speech anxiety, and cite sources are all topic discussed during this course. The class provides a chance to gain speaking experience, leading to a reduced level of anxiety while speaking.

    Course highlights:

    In my class, there were three main speeches required: a group speech, a persuasive speech, and an impromptu speech. Each of these entails a different type of speaking. The group speech is structured as an informative speech in which several students work together to explain a new concept the audience. The persuasive speech is a chance to change other's minds about a certain topic that you are passionate about. The impromptu speech is only limited preparation, so you'll have just a few minutes to structure the speech before performing it in front of the class. All of these types of speeches are relevant to everyday life, whether it's speaking at a meeting in the workplace or giving a toast, the skills learned during this class will continue to be useful throughout one's life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you'll need to maintain your motivation to prepare for the speeches. You'll also need to read and take notes almost every week, then complete an online quiz. Be brave and make sure you're ready for each speech you perform. The more prepared you are, the more confident you'll feel. Don't be afraid to ask your professor questions.
