    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Public Speaking has always terrified me but this class kind of forced me to break out of my shell, which has been a helpful skill to have over the years.

    Course highlights:

    You got to work on your people skills as well as your confidence so I would recommend this course to everyone, especially those that have stage fright.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just focus on the material. Don't think about all of the people staring you down when you get up in front of the class to present your speech or project. Just practice before class, even the day and the week before, just to be comforted by the fact that you know the material.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it helps you to speak in front of people more effectively in an non judgmental environment.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to really grab an audience into really thinking about your speak and how to speak to people without being worried of what to say. This course helped me get over my shyness.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice for speech day is to not pick the first two days to help you figure out you need to fix or say.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because anybody can benefit from public speaking, you can always improve in it.

    Course highlights:

    We learned to make eye contact with atleast two people, we also learned to say thank you at the end of your speech. When you are nervous turn that into excitement so you will sound like your actually excited to be talking about your subject.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study even if you think you know the answers to an upcoming test. Also also ask for help from your teacher if you are confused don't just assume you know the answer.
