    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is really helpful for everyday life

    Course highlights:

    This class really helped me with my communication skills. In this class, you get to learn the types of interactions between people I liked meeting all the different students and being able to help them learn and learning communication skills between people. There were both individual and group assignments, which I liked. I also liked that it was only one day of the week.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you need to be able to give some presentations and work alone and in a group. Always do every assignment and do the best you can, work as though you are aiming to get an A in the class. It really helped me.

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice, motivation and planning are the key to become a great speaker.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's not as difficult as regular public speaking courses, because it focuses more on interpersonal communication (the communication between you and another person) rather than speaking in front of a group. It also touches on lots of life lessons I feel are important for everyone to learn

    Course highlights:

    You learn how to have healthy disagreements with people, without having them escalate into nasty name-calling arguments. A big feature of this class is the usage of I-language, which focuses on telling the other person how a situation makes you feel, rather than simply pointing the finger of blame at someone

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the syllabus. Sometimes the assignments sneak up on you. Overall the class isn't that hard but her tests are difficult. Study her powerpoints often, only take notes on what isn't explicitly stated in them
