A New Experience

October 3, 2010 at 12:02 pm 1 comment

I did not really know what to expect when I signed up for this class as I have never taken anything like it before. So far in the class I have learned a lot about the different aspects of giving a speech, from choosing a topic to delivering the finished speech. In high school I was given many constraints when choosing what I would give a presentation about so I was never really passionate about what I was talking about because I could not choose something that I actually wanted to share with my peers. I look forward to being able to pick what my speech is about in this class now that I know how critical it is I also like the fact that I will be getting to hear from those that have different life experiences than me so that I can learn new things and find out more about the people in the class.

Some challenges I will have when giving my speeches will be to make sure I communicate my ideas clearly and to slow down my rate of speech. I must be able to take into consideration that my audience will not have the same knowledge I do in some areas so I will have to explain things in ways that make sense to them. I have always been a fast talker and slowing down when I get in front of my audience will be a big thing I have to work on so that they will be able to understand what I am saying. Although I am nervous about taking a class in a new area for me, I am excited to share my ideas and hear those of others.
