13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I know that this is a speech course but that is what i definitely enjoyed the most about this course. I enjoyed the different types pf speech topics we were advised to write about. It wasn't just about one thing, it was about numerous subjects. Life, personal interviews, favorite something etc. I also enjoyed the way that he split us up for activities, it made it easy to get to know thers in my class.
Although, i do not like speaking in front of people, this class has helped me realize that speaking in front of a group of students are not so bad once you get familiar with the group. Plus, Dr. Bernard helped made each of us comfortable with each other and helped us be prepared instead of just making us do the speeches in front of the class. The assignements were easy. The projects and activites were fun and intresting.
i like do my assignement because i wanted to pass my course and i can countinue on my course i also have a good education if i do that so that what i like about this course..than you
I liked everything the course activities, projects, and assignments.
In class group activities. Fun exercises to help get us comfortable with everyone.
The assignmemnts are good fun!
Good class work.
he tought me not to be scared when giving a speech. He is very helpful to the ESL students like me.
going out in the feild to do a survey and interviews. it is a fun class
What I'd like to say about this class is that it was very fun. Everyone get along and at the end of the semester, everyone became friends. Mr. Bernard's way of teaching the class was terrific! He'd always add humor when he teaches. If anyone who wants to learn how to become a good public speaker, Mr. Bernard's class is the solution!
I liked the interview speech assignment. It was a good experience.
I liked that a lot of the in class activities were group work, where we got to associate and get to know our classmates a little.
I liked doing the survey speech assignment.
That it wasnt the same ild boring lessons. It was fyn n interesting. _
what i liked about this course was that i was able to learn how to speak in front of the class without getting nervous or scared, and also learning some teqniques on how to perform a speech.
The overall course provided me with what I needed to learn. It has helped me in presenting speeches and to appropriately use words and language.
I thought that all the assignments really helped me to feel comfortable speaking in front of an audience. I liked how all the exercises we learned made me feel less anxious.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Honestly, for hime to just continue his teaching the way he does. Because i honestly enjoy the way he teaches, he gets me and it's so easy to ask for help. He is still stern and makes sure that you understand the assignment but he also is able to make you feel cofortable with the work that you will present to him.
the survey was ok, but need more time on it
I think this course is right on track with Dr. Bernard teaching this course he seems to know what needs to be taught and he does it well so there is no need for improvement.
yes! the only thing you can improve on your course is working hard do your assignment and focus on your wark that can improve you on your course if you do that and also come class every day..thank you...
Nothing that I can think of,just keep up the good work.
Nope
None at all.
NO!
his class is very interesting to take, it helps students to speech in front of student.I do not think that he needs to improve his class because for me, the class was the best.
no
None~ Mr. Bernard got it!
No
This course is truly great.

I also enjoyed the Survey assignment and i think he should yuse it in his future classes.
I recommend this class, for anyone who do not like speaking in front of people. Also, this course was a requirement for my degree and i have postpone this class till the very end just because i do not like speaking in front of people. Im a shy person so it hard for me and i thought this course would be difficult for me, however, This course turned out to be one of my favorite class. The teacher was understanding of students that did not like speaking in front of people and he did what ever he could to help me feel comfortable giving your speech. I recommend this speech course for beginners and those that dont like speaking in front of people. This course was way easier than i thought and i truly enjoyed this class.
i really like this class because i like my teacher his a good teacher to me because i really understand when he help me with my work i didn't understand he really helpful teacher with he students that why many studen like to have his class..

I really enjoyed the Cultural, values, and beliefs assignment. Learned a lot of different ways of others ways of their cultural, values, and beliefs. I especially enjoyed the part where we did the interviewing.
I love all the activities in this course. So I think Dr.Bernard deserve to teach this class in all the semester.
Liked all the speeches and in class activites
I learned so much in this class. I would recommend this to friends for sure. I had fun in this class and also learned allot about speaking in front of groups of people and having confidence in myself.
Everything because we got to interact with other students and be able to speak in front of a audience.
i like how we got together and did some group nwork as a class... it made us more sociable!
This cours with Dr.Bernard was very good. i feel that i have learned a lot and will like to have another class with his teaching styles! the projects, activites and assignments was well rounded and was very fun. had a good time doing them.
i liked this course and learned alot from Mr Bernard he is a great teacher and very understanding. helped me be a better speaker.
AWESOME
I really want this course because I learned a lot about how to prepared for doing the public speech and also the survey, so I did make a big different like taking infront of the audience and any group while during the activities. I will do appreciate the teacher job.
This class was mostly the most awesome class I've ever had, and it helped me not to be shamed in public speaking anymore.
I really liked that Dr. Bernard used very good examples about our topics that we learned in class.
i enjoyed this class so much Mr Bernard really help me with my self esteem to be more open about my opinion and always willing to what we wanted to say thank you Nr Bernard.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
No suggestions!
Do the same exact thing. nothing needs to be changed this was a very fun/good course. Maybe watch some more interviews and speechs but overall it was good.
no.
it's a good course. nothings wrong with it.
There is only one thing that i feel needs to be improved and with waould be making sure everyone did the work. i feel that when doing the speaches there was one girl that stood out that she did not do the interview and she went infront of the class and gave a speach about nothing. it kind of seemed like you think she did the project but i could cleary see she didnt not to be mean in any way i felt like i spent a long time doing that interview project and writing the paper and she has the nerv to she she was to lasy to write it! in my eyes she should not have ben able to give her speach. sorry but thats what i feel should not happen next time.
none
I appreciate the teacher for his hard working in this semester it was really good, he also help the class to make understand what we try to learn.
