Imagine yourself hosting a talk show and you are coming across as engaging, likeable and totally natural. Wouldn't it be nice to know that you can host any talk show and appear to be confident, relaxed, conversational and able to talk to guests in a meaningful way?
In this How to be a Talk Show Host course, you will learn the following:
*The difference between being a good talk show guest versus a good host
*How to look comfortable and confident on TV
*How to appear natural and sound conversational
*How to rehearse using video
This course is delivered primarily through spoken lecture. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking.
The skill you will learn in this class is not primarily theoretical or academic. It is a skill that requires physical habits. That is why you will be asked to take part in numerous exercises where you record yourself speaking on video, and then watching yourself. Learning presentation skills is like learning how to ride a bicycle. You simply have to do it numerous times and work past the wobbling and falling off parts until you get it right.
