Course Description

The overriding goal of this course is to demystify the process of writing, practicing, and performing a clear and engaging speech. In so doing, I hope this course can help each student improve the quality of their speeches and confidence with which they present them. More specifically, upon successfully completing this course, you should be able to: * design and deliver basic presentations concisely; * design and deliver informative presentations clearly; * design and deliver complex arguments persuasively; * speak confidently with appropriate rate, projection, movement, and vocal variety; * evaluate and critique speeches insightfully.

This is more than good, it is excellent. It is interesting, engaging and ...very useful to organise your thoughts, to know how to structure the speech. It helps me in all professional meetings, interviews etc...Frankly it is a life enhancing skill. The teacher is fantastic. Each video I watched at least 5 times.

This course was good... much longer than expected ( that is why I dropped at half class) but it was so well done that with only one third of the presentation skill tought I ve been able to start a video podcast with good results. Suggested
