    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because he is a great professor and very understanding. He uses a lot of visual aids in his lectures and has so much enthusiasm for the class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to gain more confidence when speaking to an audience. He would emphasize that his goal isn't to make us good public speakers, it is to make us better.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I think it is a great idea to take this course especially if you are terrified of public speaking, I advise that you take it over the summer to get it out of the way.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to students who work hard and actually want to do something with their life. It is essential to have the knowledge that I have learned in this class if you want to be successful in life. I would not recommend this class to student who are lazy because this teacher actually challenges you ( in a good way) to face your weaknesses and build them in to strengths.

    Course highlights:

    Before I took this class I was terrified of speaking in public and I had no idea how to give a good presentation. In this class I not only learned how to write and present a good speech, but I also was able to break out of my shell and meet new friends.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to give presentations in class.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it pertains to the real world. There are so many opportunities during one's life when he or she needs to speak in front of a group of people. Having the skills to excel in the deliverance of the speech or presentation is essential. This class teaches you just that!

    Course highlights:

    I learned that eye contact is necessary to give an effective and powerful speech. That eye contact is what is going to connect the speaker with the audience, which allows the speaker to become relatable to the audience. In doing so, the audience also becomes an ally. When the speaker is shaky and nervous, it is that moment of connection that the audience becomes the speaker's supporter.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would just suggest to do the work and take the class seriously. It is really not that difficult and the skills taught during the class are ones that will stay relevant through life.
