I had the wonderful opportunity to take a public speaking course this summer through Tufts. This class was extremely engaging, despite the restrictions of online learning. We began each lesson with exercises, each student would alternate leading the class on warmups, we were given time to produce a short speech to present during class time, and had a chance to watch videos of successful speeches to emulate. Our assignments included recording a draft speech to be uploaded onto Canvas, and we gave comments and suggestions to our classmates to help them improve for the final speech. This particular course opened my eyes to the beauty of speaking in public and the communication skills needed to interact with others. I felt the progress and improvement by the end of this program and can’t believe my development throughout those weeks.

The T.A.s were extremely helpful. Even though Sofia had a very limited prior experience with coding, she never felt overwhelmed because she knew that she can always ask for help. Well Done by all the staff members!

In June 2006 I walked out of a 36-year teaching career and walked into life as a student again. I've taken fun and stimulating Osher classes, met wonderful, engaged people and enjoyed cultural and social experiences ever since. Tufts Osher Institute has enriched me beyond my wildest expectations. Thanks to all.
