Communication is the backbone of our society. It allows us to form connections, influence decisions, and motivate change. Without communication skills, the ability to progress in the working world and in life, itself, would be nearly impossible. Public Speaking courses at NTCC provide students with practical tools and skills necessary to effectively communicate ideas. Selection of topic, organization of data, exercises in vocal awareness, evaluation of audience and situation and techniques of delivery are discussed and put into action. Through oral presentations in class, students will enhance their competence in oral communication.
