Nature of the Course: To improve formal and informal speaking skills
The Principles of Communication are to inform, to shape and to move others; we are equally informed, molded, and are moved by others. Our success in these everyday situations often depends uponhow effectively we are understood and how carefully we Listen.
In Fundamentals of Speech our focus is to Emphasis your ability in Preparing the speech as well as Understanding and Learning, how to Tailor a speech Objectives and Purposes to real world settings. Often students feel that if you can talk you can be a speaker. Social talking is much different then speaking at a meeting, talking to a perspective boss for an interview, or giving a toast at a wedding, even preparing for a demonstration with fliers, or preparing a demo posters or a power point. You must put on your façade or mask, like an actor, and adapt to each situation that will come to you in Life.
It is easy to talk to friends and family , they do not correct you or point out problems you might have with words, such as saying the wrong or incorrect placement of words in a sentence for example: “Me and my brother” is incorrect, you need to always introduce your brother before you, “My brother and I.” Your family might not correct you even if you use lots of just sounds in between the words such as “a”, “um” or the words “you know”. In class we try to correct and improve you speaking, but you must try and care about how you effect and affect others around you with your speech. No one is too old to change and improve.
In a speech class you are placed on task and must adapt your everyday speaking to a more formal speaking for more formal occasions. Another example would be: a boss that could change your life by hiring you, by placing you in an outstanding position in a company and by motivating you to go for the top position in a business just because you presented yourself well and use correct speaking styles.
This course is to make and help you to be a better more complete person with the ability to express yourself.
