    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is highly hilarious which makes coming to class a joy. The speeches were up to the students in terms of topic which made coming to class to listen to the speeches very interesting. If you ever needed help determining a topic or coming up with ideas for paragraphs then he was helpful and flexible with office hours.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the art of public speaking and the dos and don'ts associated with public speaking as well. There are specific styles that best suit the situation you will be speaking in. I also learned about calming exercises to complete if you are nervous before a speech which really do work.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Remember that this is not a group speech course. Instead you create a topic, research the topic and create a speech that you will give by yourself in front of the class. The best thing to do is always go and get your topic checked before you write it out, he is very helpful and that is how you will get the best grade.
