    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course developed my public speaking skills. Today I am more confident in speaking in front of a crowd because I have learned the necessary skill from this course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the speeches of the course because the class was based on it. I learned that speaking is not as terrifying as it seems.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always prepare for the speeches a week before it's due. Research your topic very well so when you give the speech you know plenty about it and won't run out of ideas.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is the best college class I have ever taken because it is not only about communications, but about self character and knowledge that can be applied to anything in life

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to formally and informally give speeches. I was trained on how to talk to an audience with great confidence and impact. I was taught rules to communicating to an audience that I can apply to anything, such as having a logical argument.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always put your heart and thoughts when writing a speech so that it will not be difficult, but passionate when delivering your speech. Make sure to always thoroughly research reliable sources to back yourself up on your ideas. Be sociable and friendly to your classmates because Nari Kim has us all work together to where we are close like family. Lastly and obviously, do not put your work to the last minute because speeches take a couple of few days to complete including memorizing. I also recommend to fully memorize your speech because using flashcards will make you more nervous and present worse.
