COM1012/3 How to Speak in Public


Welcome to this research guide for COM1012/3 How to Speak in Public. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CRA paper.

This course has been written to increase your skill in public speaking and your awareness of the importance of the ministry of speech in all areas of life in all human cultures. Its main emphasis from beginning to end is on the values of Christian ministry through speech. The course has twelve lessons under four units of study. These units deal successively with introductory comments on speaker and speech, resources available to the speaker, the speaker and the audience, and intercultural aspects of speech. Many study questions are interspersed throughout the course. Your answers to some of these questions should cause you to begin to practice valuable speech habits, which, if you continue them, will enrich your ministry through speech.

Global University does not necessarily agree with all the views represented in the resources in this guide. These are provided for the student to contrast and compare with the Biblical text and ideas presented in the Global University IST.

This course has been discontinued as of December 31, 2017, but, as per the policy of Global University, will be serviced until December 31, 2021. This guide will be deleted as of January 1, 2022.
