    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course because it helped me be able to be more confident within myself. By taking this class I was able to break out of my shell, and now I am more than capable to speak in front groups of people and not be as nervous.

    Course highlights:

    The best feeling from this course was the moment right after I gave my speech, because it gave me a sense of power and strength, like I could take on anything that came my way. I also really enjoyed the atmosphere, everyone was nice and friendly, and absolutely no one judged each other.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In the beginning of the course it is going to be scary to everyone, no one knows each other yet, and the thought of going up and speaking in front of a group of strangers is nerve racking. Just make sure you put in a lot of hours practicing your speech, record yourself, look at yourself in the mirror as you practice. Prepare early, and make sure you put in hours of practicing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned a lot about myself and the other people in my class just by listening to the types of speeches everyone else would choose. My teacher made it a comfortable and fun learning environment for us all which made the whole experience even better.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about public speaking and the different ways to cope with nervousness while speaking.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Really research your speech, you're only getting what you put into your work and so is your audience. I would highly recommend outlining and practicing your speech thoroughly
