This class was tough.
I definitely recommend this course because it captures the essence of human interaction. I walked into this class wondering why students need to learn how to "communicate". This course astonished me in ways where I see the world of communication completely different. Communication is about engagement and the body language one uses, it is not about the words that just come out of our mouth but how it comes out. This class really taught me to become more confident when interacting and conversing with others.
The highlight of this course was the experience based speakers that came to share with us. They described the steps in how they became a successful communicator. I learned that successful communication can only happen if both communicators are fully engaged. Body language is the key to keeping an ongoing conversation. Lastly, a great communicator has engaged themselves in great practice and effort.

Advice for students:
To be successful in this class, all students MUST read each chapter that is assigned. Skimming actually hurts you more than not reading the chapter at all. Each step and method introduced is very important to keep in mind for the later presentations. Engage yourself with the students in your class because you will have many group assignments. Lastly, practice makes perfect. Practice what you learned about being a good communicator. Take action in what you learn do not ever just listen and not act upon.
