Pretty easy, overall.
The class as a whole was based on a very good idea. The intention of it was to help people who are afraid of giving presentations in front of people due to their anxiety, give speeches. However, I feel like the class did nothing other than embarrass people for their struggles. Personally, I have struggled with giving speeches in front of crowds of people for years due to personal insecurities, and I feel like this class has not done anything to change that for me.
The class was very diverse and we did a lot of cultural projects. It helped people who weren't usually exposed to as much culture, figure out how to handle and accept it with open arms. It was very good at bringing people together.

Advice for students:
I suggest memorizing the speech (if you have anxiety), so you don't have to worry about reading the wrong line. Also, a trick I used, was to focus on a couple of desks or objects in the room that were about the level of your audience. It'll look like you're looking at your audience if it's done correctly.
