    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    There were times in the class when I felt she didn't really care about the students. She also simply didn't teach our class very well and I don't really feel like I learned that much.

    Course highlights:

    I did learn some speaking skills and became less scared of speaking in front of the class as the semester went on. As I did more presentations, I gained more control over my nerves and did better in my presentations and speeches.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest to try to not be afraid of speaking in front of the class. It really isn't that bad, so it's just best to do the best you can and get a good grade without being stressed over it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It helps students not feel pressured by giving a speech

    Course highlights:

    I learned that it is better to know more information over your topic so you keep a steady flow of words going. Memorizing your speech is not a good option.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your work and pay attention to the professor.
