    Participate in every activity and don't put things off. This course is a course that requires a lot of participation in order for someone to do well. Don't be afraid to look stupid because some of the activities actually help you when it comes to presenting the speech.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this Course due to the fact that you learn a lot in this course. At some point in your life you will end up giving a speech of some sort. This class will prepare you for that moment.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed giving the speeches. We had one group project and then the others were individual. I learned how plan and organize a speech so that I am fully prepared when it comes time to give the speech.

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Participate and just enjoy it. I found it difficult to participate in some of exercises due to my fear of making a fool of myself. Thus, I missed out on a lot of learning opportunities.
