Does speaking in front of a group of people incite terror in you? It’s on the top of the list of things that people fear most. In Introduction to Public Speaking you will learn how to prepare your speech—from an introduction that grabs the attention of your audience, to content that keeps them engaged, to a conclusion that gives people something they can do tomorrow as a result of what you said today. These steps will help calm your nerves and make you an effective speaker. Get started today.


This course is exactly what I needed at this time in my life. In God’s strength and through the Holy Spirit I now have a psychological, down-to-earth approach of saying what needs to be said.

I really enjoyed this course and everything that it had to offer. It really taught me a lot about how to public speak more effectively. Being an English teacher, I teach lessons on how they can public speak and I will definitely use some of this material to teach them as well.

This is an excellent course which shows a simple & practical way to outline along with present a speech/talk. It will help me be a better presenter by looking at a speech as a talk with many people instead of a big presentation.

This course has taught me that in public speaking I am to fulfill a need for the audience. To meet that need I must be plain and direct about what I want them to hear. Show them what I am trying to say by giving real life examples. Tell them how to apply what they have heard to their lives or give them the opportunity to choose to use the application.
