    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class to anyone and everyone. It's a great way to get to know people and to break out of ones nervous shell. A great way to boost up a bit of confidence.

    Course highlights:

    We all know what public speaking is but do we know what it takes to give a powerful speech. It's more than getting up there and talking. There's outlines involved. There's notecards and nervous heartbeats everywhere.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would consider paying close attention to what you read because there is a high chance the class will go back to it at some point.
