    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class for every kind of person. Those who are shy learn to break out of their shells more and are able to comfortably give a speech by the end of the class. For those who are not shy, they learn proper techniques to give a speech. This class is a skill needed in every bodies life and that is why I highly recommend taking this class.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course I learned how to be able to give a proper speech. I knew this would be a skill I needed, no matter what career I chose to continue with. By the end of the semester I was able to give not only a professional speech but also an entertaining one.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Defiantly take the course, you will not regret it. Make sure you practice your speeches. The more you know about your topic the more comfortable you will be giving your speech. Also, it is important to enjoy your topic. If you do not enjoy your topic, nobody will enjoy your speech.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    As a young girl I was always very shy, so this was definitely not my forte class. However, this class has boosted my confidence drastically. However, that is not the whole reason for a student to take this. It is needed for other requirements in college. Some people may not realize that it can affect not only performance in a different classroom, but also in your social life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights was honestly seeing some people share some things about their lives, and something they very well know about, such as physics. I learned how to be more comfortable in front of others, and take a stand for what I believe in, without being shot down.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This may be a difficult course, but it is for a reason. Because it was so hard, it forced me to pay attention more to detail, therefore remembering and learning more than I expected.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend taking this class. Public speaking prepares you for certain events in your life that require the need to give presentations, have a job interview, or even just holding a conversation. These are all very important aspects that will be needed in the workforce as an adult.

    Course highlights:

    During this course there are many lectures that focus on things like appealing to the audience, correct word choice, and proper posture. This were amazing aspects to learn because as the class went on and gave more and more speeches you started to feel comfortable with yourself speaking in front of others. Many people do not realize how hard it can be to give a huge presentation to an audience and with this class you learn to overcome the fear that is created by speaking in front of others.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course you must pay attention to the lectures and take notes. When you build your speeches these lectures will help the words flow out of your mouth and to the audience much easier than without learning them by giving certain techniques you never would have considered before taking the class.
