    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved COMM111. At first, I hated public speaking and it made me nervous. My instructor wiped my anxiety away by creating a comfortable classroom dynamic. She made it more personal to students and relatable in a way that made most of us realize speaking in public was nothing to sweat about.

    Course highlights:

    I found enjoyment doing the speeches because we had enough time to think about what are topics would be and Kriste really helped us organize our speeches. Also the feedback form the students was very crucial to my success in that class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you take this course, try to focus on getting better. Don't focus on being anxious or ways to get over anxiety - this just makes it worse. Focus on what little changes you can make to improve your speeches and your topics and you'll be fine. Millions of people can do it, so can you!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Reasoning why I would personally recommend Public Speaking include, this class helps individuals get over or start to successfully get over the fear of talking to people. In the real world situations, you're going to have to have conversations with others

    Course highlights:

    From this course I had learned that you cant have the fear of speaking to others if you'd like to successfully pass the class. Another thing I learned is you can figure out how your class mates with interpret your speech by the educational level in the room and the experience the individuals have. Just keep in mind that nothing stand in your way of succeeding except your own fear.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Things that will come in hand when taking this course is to stay on top of things and repetition is key to succeed in his assigned speeches and assignments.
