What students are saying.


“I now have the tools I need to write and memorize a speech effectively. Whereas before I didn't know the difference between an essay and a speech, now I know that a speech is more than a spoken paper. It is a three-dimensional experience that requires connection with the audience.” —Lydia


“I can say with confidence that the public speaking course has helped me tremendously. About six months after taking the course, I had to do some public speaking for a dual-credit class at our local community college, and I’ve never been so thankful for the skills that I learned through the IEW public speaking course! I got an A in the class!” —Madison
