    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I believe that speech class is a very sensitive class and you should definitely make sure you are taking the right professor which was my mistake. I didn't.

    Course highlights:

    My ability to speak in public definitely improved. I feel more confident to talk in front of a group of people and I also learned how to structure my speech which I couldn't do before the class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely know who your professor is. Make sure you go over your speech before the actual speech and timing in speech is everything. So, make sure you are not going overtime.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It is a required course, however I learned a lot more in it than I expected to, and I think it's a good course to help your speaking skills you might need to use in other classes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned different ways to build speeches, different techniques on presenting them, and different ways to help yourself be less nervous.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class, read the retired text, and start on your speeches early.
