This class was tough.
I would recommend taking this course because it helps teach you and motivate you to use public speaking as a commuication tool. A lot of students or people in general don't like to do public speaking because of speaking in front of others. However, by taking this course it helps you overcome that fear you might have with public speaking.
I learned by taking this course than we as people pretty much use public speaking everyday without knowing it. We're in line at the grocery store and we're having a conversation with the cashier about our day and we have another customer listening right behind us. Although, it might be different from standing on a stage, giving a speech in front of 50 different people. This course taught the most important thing with public speaking is eye contact. It seems as though it you make eye contact with someone it helps lower your nerves because you get the feeling they are really listening to you and with that you feel like your having s simple conversation. You want to smike, interact and show great verbal skills in front of people so your nerves don't show or get the best of you.

Advice for students:
In order to succeed in this course, you really just need to do it. At first I was scared to take upon this course and knew I would freak out when it came for the public speaking part. But eventually I had to tell myself, "you just gotta do it, you just gotta do it". And I did. Practice public speaking by speaking a speech in front of family or friends. You can also practice by practicing in front of a mirror. If you can continue to do these little study tips your nerves won't be as high as before when it comes down to public speaking.
