Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It is a required course for theatre majors. It really helps you develop your public speaking skills and know how to audition for a drama or comedy play. However, there was not much academic orientation besides the exercises we did in class. The acting performances were too much based in "choices" even if they were not natural. The teacher was not so organized and got out of the original syllabus in some occasions. Also, there was not enough feedback for written assignments and performances.
We had to do a journal every week of what we had done, detailing the exercises, rehearsals, performances, etc. The course also required us to see at least one of three performances. The monologues and partner scenes were real highlights of the course.

Advice for students:
Rehearse your scenes in front of other people. Also, read the plays before you choose a scene for monologues.
