    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it is useful both for university and beyond and serves to fulfill a requirement. I was happy I took it my first semester. Public speaking is a must in our society, no matter what role you play. Being able to speak to a group and learn how to do so effectively will increase both your confidence and your appeal to potential employers in interviews, especially group interviews.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to research a specific topic. I learned how to deliver points in a concise and direct fashion. I learned how to keep a group's attention by engaging and making the topic relevant to their lives by using easily relate-able examples, inflection, pausing, etc. I use a lot of these techniques daily teaching Spanish to my students.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you prepare your speeches before you give them. Share them with 3-4 people and have them give you feedback. They are usually short, nowhere longer than 5 minutes. You would be more than able to find a few people to listen and tell you what they think.
