About this Guide

Did you know that public speaking skills can be used in all areas of your life?  Learning and practicing good speaking skills will help you present your ideas in a precise way while enhancing how well you communicate with others. Hence, this guide focuses on public speaking skills that you can use to give speeches in class or in front of other audiences. These guidelines are intended to supplement Speech 107, not substitute your instructor's requirements.
