Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would definitely recommend this course! This course is not the easiest course you will take but it is a very rewarding class. Crystal can be a bit tough on grading but she is a really great teacher that cared about her students. I learned a lot from this course and had a lot of opportunities to practice my public speaking skills.
I learned how to speak in front of an audience and how to use my voice to capture attention. I also learned how to look at the entire audience while speaking. We wrote a lot of formal outlines for speeches and that was something I learned how to do as well.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
Write your speeches in advance so that you can ask the professor questions and you can focus on your delivery beforehand. You will not be able to write your speech and practice delivery in the same night, trust me. It seems scary and stressful to do a lot of speeches, but with every speech it gets easier. It just takes practice to get used to speaking in front of an audience. Don't give up!
