This class was tough.
I would highly recommend this course to other students because public speaking is a skill that every person, no matter his or her age, should learn. Every student is more than likely going to college to get a higher education, which they can later on pursue a job in his or her field of interest; with that being said, typically every job consists of communicating with others, whether it be his or her co-workers and/or his or her customers. Therefore, I recommend some sort of speech class to every single student, no matter what his or her major is because he or she will need the skill of communication for any job he or she will pursue later on in life.
The main highlight of this course for me was getting over my fear of public speaking. Before taking this class, I would have never gotten up and spoken in front of others for minutes on end; although, now I would have no problem doing that because this course made me overcome that fear of mine. Throughout the course not only did I learn about the many different forms of speaking, but I also learned how to properly prepare and give the many different types of public speeches. Overall, I enjoyed this course very much, and learned many different skills for becoming great at speaking to and in front of others.
