    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it taught me how I should act when giving a speech as well as how to behave when I'm part of the audience.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the discussion we had before class. When calling attendance, the professor would come up with a random question and each student had to answer, that way we would be comfortable speaking out loud to the class and we got to know each other as classmates.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course takes a lot of writing and practicing. I am a very shy person and do not like speaking in front of large groups, thus this class was a little difficult for me. However, the professor makes sure everyone is comfortable and encourages us to practice so when you give the speech it's all from memory.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I liked this course because the teacher encouraged us, the students, to interact with each other and to be respectful with one another. The only part I did not like of the class is that we had to spend money on a textbook we never used.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how one should act when speaking in public. From the posture that I should have to the tones of voice I should use. We learned how to write and essay and effectively deliver it. The professor also taught us to be respectful when someone is presenting and how we should behave as an audience.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write your essays with anticipation and make sure to practice reading them out loud if you have trouble memorizing. If you are afraid of speaking in front of big crowds just remember everyone will go through the same thing as you, thus, take a breath and try to deliver your essay as good as possible.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend taking this course simply because the skills obtained in this course are very universal in your life and actually be helpful in your favor for your awaiting future.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is the realization that the communication skills learned in that class will be actually be used quite often. For example, job presentations, in this course you will learn how to speak and interact with your audience while speakibg publicly This I find quite useful since it is very common for everybody do bervouse and mess up these types of presentations.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students considering this course shouldn't be afraid and go and TAKE IT. Though it may be nerve wrecking at first, you will get past those first time jitters.
