Really Quick... I am switching classes, for a Monday night instead of Weds night. I am torn between 2 classes: Marriage and Family Relationships, and Intro to Public Speaking. They are for the same credit category, so it's either one or the other.. what would you pick? I am very interested in both.. the relationship one for obvious reasons, and public speaking because it's an area that I would really like to work on, and could probably speak about things that really interest me.

Intro to Public Speaking, just because you seem more interested. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'd take the Marriage and Family Relationships, because Public Speaking is one of the reasons I never continued with my education.<br><br>
I think you should take Public Speaking, because it sounds like you're more interested in it.

I took what I thought was a public speaking class and while we did give speeches often, it was ALWAYS on predetermined topics and EVERYONE had the same topic. OMG, SO boring.<br><br>
Then again, I have NO problem speaking in public.

My major is Political Science, and planning on getting a teaching degree in Social Studies.<br><br>
Public speaking makes more sense if I think about the long term <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I picked public speaking. I'm personally biased against anyone trying to teach about personal relationship to me. I'll have more fun in a public speaking class talking about things that interest me.
