Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The professor insures everyone understands all assignments. He clearly outlines his lessons so they are easy to follow. He lets you choose the topics you speak about and gives direction if he can on where to start looking for resources.
This course helps you learn how to overcome one's fear of public speaking and gets a person used to doing research. The criticism students get on their speeches really helps them see their weaknesses. Overall, this course does exactly what it is supposed to and is so much fun.

Advice for students:
This course mostly involves researching speech topics, writing outlines and practicing and delivering your speeches. Go as in depth as you wish in research and do the outline before you research. Then you do not follow rabbit trails while looking for information. Finally, practice your speeches. The speech does not always have to be memorized, though it looks better if a student gives a memorized speech. DO NOT READ OFF SLIDES. This is so boring and shows little prep. Slides should be used as an outline only.
