lawrence    There's a LOT of work to do. Marks are straightforward and the class is certainly unlike the others. It's fun, but I wouldn't call it a bird course.

albert    Fun course. It really helps improve your speeches and 80+ is guaranteed.

chinchilla1    NOT a bird course. 80+ is NOT guaranteed. I'm being serious when I say that unless you only take 1-4 courses per term, all non-engineering or unless you have no other things in life to worry about like a job, all that's guaranteed is 60-80%. You potentially have 75% of your mark before 2 months into term, and at least 50%. SPCOM 223 is NOT a workshop course. There are ONLY 3 workshop classes per term, one before each

UWstudentx    I'd say it was pretty easy. It really depends on your prof, try to aim your speeches towards your prof's likings and get them to asses your outlines before doing your speech. Extremely fun course if you like to socialize. Recommended*** Kathleen O'hara is the best

emmawehner    The speeches are not too hard. But there is a lot of work. I had Heather Hill and it was a fairly challenging class.
