    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved Professor Ramirez and her class. It's fast paced and challenging without being overwhelming and I have learned so much from her.

    Course highlights:

    I have taken speech classes before but I learn how to write speech outlines and give a "word-for-word" speech from this class for the first time.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't wait until the last minute to write your outline. Write it early and practice it so you can rewrite anything that sounds funky.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was actually taken at Phoenix College but Course Hero did not have it provided. I would recommend this class to anyone who is afraid of public speaking. So indefinitely, everyone. We start the semester off with speeches about ourselves which helps us get to know one another on a personal level. This creates a great level of comfort within the classroom which makes it less intimidating to get up and speak in front of everyone. Liz provides extra time out of the classroom to help prepare our speeches when needed. She teaches the class right out of the public speaking book she wrote and published. This class teaches so much more than speaking but listening and understanding as well.

    Course highlights:

    Each individual in my class had a rough first speech. However, by our final speech, most of us were able to bring our professor into tears with our own words. I learned to not only conquer my fear of public speaking, but to be good at it as well. You learn to understand your audience in order to be a listenable speaker. The goal is to make your audience want to take action after hearing what you have to say. One of my favorite parts about the class was watching the timid speakers blossom by the end of the semester into listenable speakers. Each day was a highlight in Ms. O'Brien's class. I took away so many life lessons and public speaking lessons, I could never learn enough.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Plan your speech weeks in advance. It may seem like you can wing it but it feels much more satisfying knowing your speech made a difference in someone's life. The best study tip I can give is to practice, practice, practice. Repeat your speech 100 times a day before your speaking day. Memorizing speeches by heart makes you a much more listenable speaker than one who reads off notecards and slideshows.
