    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A public speaking course is relevant to almost every career and especially in social situations. This class helped me to calm my nerves in speaking in front of large numbers of people. It also helped to break me out of my shell in social encounters. I would recommend this class to anyone who has fears or self doubt about speaking in front of people.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the quick topic debates where a random portion of the class had to argue points of view on certain topics with a limited amount of time to prepare. This taught us simple debate techniques that could be used in persuasion.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be open to speaking. Don't be afraid to speak up during a discussion. Let your words flow and don't overthink how you should say something.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great course, cause you get many opportunity to speak in front of an audience. It's a easy course

    Course highlights:

    This course taught us many speech structures such as forensic, ceremonial, and policy and it's useful when choosing how to appeal to audience. This class has also given me many hand on experience of what to use as presentation aid and uncertain that comes with the day of presentation.

    Definitely, read the text. During the course, use many flashcard to help you understand the concepts.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Not only is the class relatively easy, but it also is very beneficial. The techniques learned in this class have real-world use, so it is not a pointless class that will never be relevant in real life. We gave a total of five speeches, took online quizzes every Friday over famous speeches talked about in class, had a midterm, and a final.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained certain techniques and tips to become more comfortable in speaking in front of audiences. In addition, the numerous speeches given in this class has allowed me to reduce my nerves whenever I have to speak in front of a large number of people. We learned different speech types, when to use which one, and learned language techniques to amplify the effectiveness of our speeches. It was a breakout class so on two days we were in a small classroom of about 20 people, and on the third day we were in a lecture hall. In the lecture hall, we went over famous speeches. We analyzed these and broke them down. Dr. Bjorn went over what was done well in the speech and what could have been better.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you wish to pursue a job that requires talking in front of people whether it be a lawyer or a businessman that has to give a presentation, this class will be beneficial to you. You may not like the idea of standing in front of people and talking for several minutes, but practice makes perfect. There is no better way to practice than to take a class where the teacher/professor constructively critics your speeches and really wants you to become better.
