I’m feeling a little more comfortable in speech class. Here’s why.

Where do I begin? It’s the second week of speech class, I was very nervous at first because I’m kind of quiet and I don’t like speaking to a crowd. My nervousness is starting to subside a little and I feel a little more comfortable because our instructor has us doing a lot of group activities, like making outlines of chapters on giant post-its and speaking to the class about it as a group. This makes it fun and interesting. And, in the process we are getting to know one another and in turn making it easier and more comfortable to speak in front of the class. I like that she is going about it this way because it’s slowly easing us into it and not doing what I thought was going to happen; throwing us right in there to give a speech to the class.

This may not be as bad as I thought it would be. I think it will be fun and memorable.

    I agree, I think if we were just thrown up there and told to give a speech it would be alot harder. I like the fact that she eases us into it.

    I also Agree I think we are very lucky to have such a relaxed instructor at our college who really knows the way public speaking works. For example in speech class we have participated in so many great activities and at the same time we are learning new ways of speaking in public.
