Growing as a Speaker

November 23, 2010 at 9:29 am 5 comments

When we first started the class I dreaded talking in front of any groups whether it be in a classroom or even just out in public. I have always been able to talk to another person and be capable of carrying on a conversation with them.  After going through speech class and being “forced” to conquer my fears it has really helped me in real life situations.  I find myself not being afraid to speak up in front of groups, which could be on the basketball team, at church, or even at family events. This class has helped me tremendously in a positive way and I can only hope to continue improving each time.

    I feel the same way as you Blake, before starting this class I never spoke out even in most family functions, but this class has helped me to open up and speak out. It has made me come out of my shy self and now I find myself speaking out even to strangers. Im really glad I had to take this class, it has helped me in so many ways.
