In the beginning of this course, some students had worried about speaking in front of the whole class. They were nervous about it and/or they we just afraid. But I feel like the speech exercises such as the group presentations and our narrative speeches helped us prepare for the big speeches like the informative and persuasive. The evaluations helped each speech deliveries improve and helped to be more prepared. I believe I have succeeded in this class because I have always finished my assignments on time. If I missed an assignment, I would communicate with the instructor to find a way to make up the missing assignment. There are couple important things I've learned but one thing that is emphasized to me is communication because communication will be a big part in our future especially when we all get jobs.
