In our group, I volunteer myself to handle everything, not because I do not trust my other groupmates but because no one will initiate if one will not start. So as a contribution, I arrange all the requirements needed as well as their individual task and set a deadline for all the needed requirements. I also gave them the list and flow of the discussion and the things and compiled this whole paper as well as the power point presentation and videos for commercial with the help of Lorraine. Me and Airish collaborate ideas to come up with this presentation. We ended up 6 members in the group. For the evaluation, I can say that all of the girls participated well and they are really responsible. In this subject, Oralcom, I can say that I already faced my fear in speaking in public, although there are still feelings of being scared but it is better than before. I think this opportunity of having 21 classmates only and a jolly and friendly professor made a big contribution to develop more my interpersonal skills (Garcia).
As I enrolled into this class, I expected to learn many things like to improve my skills in communication as a sender and a receiver, and enhance my abilities verbally and non-verbally. This expectation was reached through the help of practices and exercises done during the semester. We used different methods individually like impromptu and poem recitations, and group activities like debate and short skits.

As for myself, I did my best to help my group and do my speech and the tasks assigned to me. Additionally, the final term requirement was done ahead of time to prevent cramming. Many things were learned in this course with the help of a jolly and cute prof. Even though the class is so noisy every oralcom time, still we managed to listen to the professors teachings and lessons. There is no single moment that the class became boring and it only proved that lerning is fun. I learned that men are pain on the neck. Kidding. I learned how to speak well and right in front of other people. Also the dos and donts whenever in front. And lastly, everyones confidence was lifted in this class (Calangi).
I can say that Oral Communication (Oralcom) is the most stress free and chill class among the 9 subjects that I am taking this semester. First, I found it really challenging because Tita A, our professor, gave us tasks that focused on our communication skills. I admit that I am not that good in english and speaking in from of many people. Moreover, I am not used at being in a class where there were only 20 of us and the majority is irregular students. I was afraid that I may not able to make
