Many of us fear public speaking. Simply the idea of giving a speech may give you nightmares. Feeling confident when you speak in front of people is one of the most important skills you will ever develop in your life. Learning how to be persuasive as well as confident could land you that scholarship, job, or just get your parents off your back when you get home way later than you told them you would. This course examines what skills a good speaker needs. And since you've spent the year examining a range of visual and written texts, it's time to apply your learning to your own areas of passion, interest or talent. Share your analysis of some of your favourite texts with the class, completing a speech or oral presentation.
