    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It is a mandatory course here at GMU. It is a fun course, especially if you like speaking.

    Course highlights:

    We only had three speeches. I learned that just because I am a talkative person, does not mean that I like to talk in front of others.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the work, and prepare for speeches. It is too easy for you not to pass.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course because the skills taught are necessary and useful for everyone in everyday life. The professor is effective, as he uses the skills that he has gained, as a speaker, and uses them in class to help his students remain engaged, so that we can learn how to do the same for anyone we speak to throughout life. We learn necessary skills like, the proper way to speak effectively and how to adapt to the environment and the person/people you may speak to. I really feel like my perspective on public speaking has changed for the better, and that I am improving as a speaker already.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of this course is every time I had to present a speech in front of my class. With each speech, my score got better and better, and it feels good to know that this course is really effective. I also noticed that I started applying the skills that I learned in the classroom in my everyday life, and speaking is becoming easier for an introvert like myself. We learn necessary skills like, the proper way to speak effectively and how to adapt to the environment and the person/people you may speak to.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice to make sure to constantly look over the schedule for the course and make sure they complete all the assignments and submit them in time; show up for every class; and have fun!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Very calm and developing experience. Amazing professor and greatly improves delivering speeches

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of self confidence and became very relaxed in giving speeches. I could choose the type of speech I wanted to give whether it was formal or informal.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be creative in writing speeches. Don't write something you can't fully commit to. And be open to new ideas.
