    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you need this class to graduate, then I would recommend taking public speaking. If you don't need it, then don't enroll.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that taking public speaking online was difficult. My advice is if you can, take this class on campus. Also I learned about the different types of speeches. For example, if you take this course then you will be required to give an informative speech.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are uncomfortable talking in front of people, then practice in front of the mirror. Be sure to write your speech ahead of time so you don't say things like "um".

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely hate speaking in public, but Brad Bailey made it seem okay, and not so terrifying. When he is teaching, he is in his element. He makes you want to listen, and be as great as he is in front of everyone. I learned so much about writing, and speaking in front of people in his weekend course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were Brad Bailey, and the fact that we only had to go for three weekends. Taking a weekend course might seem scary because they are so quick and compact, but Mr. Bailey did an excellent job at teaching you everything you needed to know about writing a speech in the short time he was given. I ended his class with an A; I never thought I could get an A in public speaking.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you focus in his class, and do not forget to bring you A-game. His class is about being both creative, and practical. You want to be able to think outside of the box, but also make your speech relatable to everyone in the room. You only have a week to write each speech, therefor, you must spend your time wisely.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course with this professor. This course helped me become more comfortable speaking to a group of people. It also taught me how to organize and prepare speeches.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to present myself before a group of people.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell other students not to go into the class nervous and fearful. The more nervous you are makes it much more difficult to present the speech, so go into the class relaxed and calm and you will have a better outcome.
