    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because even thought most students take it to get it out of the way, the skills you learn will be important later on.

    Course highlights:

    Basically the highlights were how well your speeches were. What I learned was all things you needed for a successful speech such as using visual aids, PowerPoint slides, videos and how to incorporate them into my speeches. Also you learn what posture to take and what tone of voice to use to get your audience's attention.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the course as soon as you can because if you are on of those who fear public speaking and are required to take it you might as well just take it as soon as possible, before the fear builds up even greater.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A lot of people dread having to take a communications course and I completely understand because I was on of those people. Presenting and talking in front of an audience is nerve wracking but because of this course I now know how to deal with those nerves. Ms. Johnson helped me understand how to prepare for a presentation, how to be confident when presenting and she also taught me that nerves can actually be a good thing. If you have trouble doing presentations and you want to overcome that I whole heartedly recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    Everything I learned in this course was beneficial in some way, shape, or form. Like I mentioned before I learned how to prepare for a presentation something I thought I new but in reality I really didn't. I learned that having nerves means you care about what you are doing and that is a good thing! I also learned how to turn those nerves into something that feels more positive like adrenaline. I learned that you can't just throw something together and get a good grade that may have worked in high school but college is a different ball park. Most importantly I learned that if you put your all in to something the result will almost always be something great.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course you have got to listen to everything your instructor is telling you, I promise you may get annoyed and feel like it is all a waste of time but I assure you what they are telling you will be beneficial then and later on. You must prepare for all your presentations and I mean really prepare by the time it is time for you to present you should know your presentation like the back of your hand, I guarantee if you prepare properly you will feel very confident after every presentation.
