    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course for anyone looking to take a public speaking course. I learned an immense amount of information from the instructor. It was a course that challenged me to be concise and articulate when speaking in public. I learned practical information that I am sure will help me succeed in my future career.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to correctly and efficiently communicate when speaking in public, whether that be in classes before professors and peers, in interviews, or in my future career before fellow employees. Not only did I learn about the speaking aspect, I learned how to use visual resources in presentation and how to present myself physically in a more professional way.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to have an organized binder and take concise notes in class. Work on speaking assignments ahead of time. Waiting until the last minute to work on the speaking assignments in this class will not earn a good grade. You have to put in the effort if you want an A.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class was something I hated, talking in front of people. It was the worst class I've taken because of that fact. I don't regret taking the class because it is a necessary class to have and I would recommend to get Public Speaking out of the way as soon as possible. My teacher was nice but had high expectations for her class, making her a great teacher. She told us exactly what she expected and encouraged us to ask questions so we got better at communication.

    Course highlights:

    I can now give speeches a little easier and have learned all the things you have to consider about your audience before you can give a speech, such as how many people are attending, what age group they are, their genders, and level of schooling they've had will impact how your speech is given. I also learned the different types of speech and the correct way to give them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask a lot of questions when taking this course. Choose topics you know about and like if you're going to give a speech.

    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.
