A Course on Speaking

In cooperation with a student residence I have begun teaching a seven week course for young adults on public speaking. The goal of the program is to help the participants become better at speaking in a formal situation, be it an oral exam, a job interview, or giving a presentation before an audience. This week we examined the topic of meta-communication, that is to saw what our body communicates outside of the words we speak. The participants heard a presentation and then watched a short clip exemplifying the topic and afterwards there was an opportunity for hands on practice. The conclusion of the program will be the participants each giving a formal address.
