    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it will help develop public speaking skills, learn how to present effective speeches, and what situations call for which kinds of speeches.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course included speeches that we practiced giving spontaneously, given less than five minutes for preparation. This was a highlight because the subject matter was comical and each speech was funny with low pressure, while at the same time we practiced a valuable skill and learned the basic structure of putting together a speech. In addition to this, I learned about the basics of effective public speaking in various situations, and was able to practice doing this and received constructive criticism in discussion.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Organize your writing for your speech ahead of time and make notes for yourself while you're presenting to help out, but know enough about your topic to be able to improvise and answer questions.
