    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because the professor was kind, and the class was super fun.

    Course highlights:

    You gain some knowledge on stage presence and being able to deliver messages in front of a crowd.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice your speeches in front of your family and by yourself in the mirror. It sounds silly, but it helps.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because, while it's something that makes people uncomfortable, it's something that is absolutely a necassary skill.

    Course highlights:

    Impromptu speeches, (short speeches on a random topic without any preparation) which are the most common form of speeches that everyone does daily.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do it. Make an effort to step outside of your comfort zone. The only way you'll improve is by trying. If you don't do it, you won't get better. That is the reality of things. Just by putting in effort, you've done the hard part.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the teacher is amazing. We received lots and lots of information, from how to speak and how to correctly target your audience with your speech.

    The highlight was the speeches we had to give. We were given popup speeches as well as ones we could prepare. I enjoyed these because you rt teaches you how to adequately create a speech.ecieved lots of criticism and good feedback . I

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say definitely prepare well for your speeches. The teacher will definitely grde the way see fit and based off how much effort you included.
