    Course Overview:

    Public speaking gets you ready for college. In Classes you are always asked to speak about a certain topic and you can feel move comfortable if you have taken a speech class

    Course highlights:

    the class teaches you how to think in different scenario's so you can be ready for anything that a teacher may throw at you. For instance, you need to get up in front of a group of people to give a presentation you can do it with more confidence then before taking the speech class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be yourself, I was always someone that would sit back and listen to everyone else talking and dint want to have to be the one talking. I found that the da of every speech I wanted to be the first one to give my speech so I was done so I always went to class prepared to get my speech over.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Unfortunately public speaking is a required course so it is one that almost all students have to take in order to receive a degree. Many students don't enjoy taking this class, however if a student has the option to take it with a small class size, then I highly recommend doing so. I had about 20 students in my class, and I didn't get as nervous as I did when I had to speak at my high school graduation. You still have to get in front of people, but it should be a lot better for students if they don't have a very large audience.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of the course that I enjoyed is that you got to choose topics that you were interested in speaking about. It wasn't like a typical English class where the professor often gave you a specific idea to write a paper over. Yes, there were specific types of speeches in which we had to follow a certain outline, but we were able to choose something that was interesting to us to research about. In this course I learned that some college professors grade a lot more harder than others. The highest grade I received on my speech was a 91%, and I definitely wasn't used to that in high school. I was used to getting high A's on my papers and assignments, and it took me awhile to accept that I wasn't going to do as well in public speaking as I wanted to.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For me personally, the best advice I can give to students when taking public speaking is to practice a lot of times. If I didn't practice my speech over and over I know I would've freaked out really bad in front of my class. It helped me out a lot when I prepared about a week in advance for each speech, because I knew that if I practiced my speech lots of times then I would be more familiar with it. I'm not going to lie, this class was a little stressful, but if you put some time into it, then you won't be as stressed out.
