    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it allows for students to improve their speaking skills, which is essential to everyday life. This course should have something that appeals to every individual. There's the speech side that branches out to regular platform speaking-aka events where you give a speech in front of others-and also interpretation events where you perform a piece of work whether it be a book, play, or even movie. The debate side is fairly straightforward in that students research about current topics, whether it be foreign and domestic, and debate on the pros and cons of each topic.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights in this course mainly fall into the category of enjoyment and lifelong lessons learnt from it. Speech and debate is a community where you can utilize and ultimately improve not only your speaking skills, but also writing and researching as well. It's a class that doesn't make you ask, "why is this information necessary in our lives?" When it comes to certain events that you choose to participate in, you will learn how to manage time well and also gain much stamina along the way.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If I had to say anything about Speech and Debate, I'd say don't slack off. While it may seem like a laid-back class in that there are no lectures or note-taking, the work load is just as large, or maybe even greater, as any other class. Along with working hard, make sure to interact with not only your teammates, but also students from other schools. It'll make the experience more enjoyable and most importantly, memorable.
