    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Well I did the course online, and she assigned about 2-3 recorded speeches that required an audience of 6 people. It's hard to bring together 6 people, unless in your family or classmates.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that public speaking is quite hard. Also speaking anxiety is pretty serious. We did a chapter about speech anxiety and how to cope with it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Online isn't a bad thing, it's nice to have your own schedule. If something is assigned to you early in the week, do it early in the week! It's hard to catch up in online school, so do your work fast.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Fantastic course! This teacher is able to efficiently present large volumes of material while still maintaining her student's interest. She definitely requires you to do the work but she is always willing to offer a helping hand to those who are applying themselves.

    Course highlights:

    Public speaking has never been my forte. I have extreme social anxiety and getting in front of a large group of people to speak has always made me extremely uncomfortable. Truth be told, I still don't rush for the opportunity to speak in front of people after finishing her class. However, she taught me the skills I need to make an impactful presentation and she taught me how to "fake it till I make it". She's a fantastic teacher and you will definitely benefit from taking her class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be willing to devote an hour of practice for every minute of your speech. Unless you are already a master public speaker, there is no way you will be able to give good presentations without practicing them.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    At first I did not see the use for me to take a public speaking class but as the course went along I saw how beneficial it is to me and my field of study especially since I speak with new clients on a daily basis. I was quickly able to recognize my weaknesses in public speaking and learned how to correct them.

    Course highlights:

    How to project with good body language and to avoid words like "uh" and "ums" while speaking. Keeping good eye contact. Maintaining a good rate of speech. Practice proper enunciation and pronunciation and avoiding terms that your audience may not be familiar with. Never assume that the audience already knows what you are speaking about so explain and answer questions they may be thinking of before they even ask! Lots of practice speeches to make your more comfortable as the course moves along.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice speaking aloud, especially before a speech presentation and it's okay to make mistakes during your speech. You can have notes on index cards but never read directly from the cards.
