Its too long. Public Speaking is best when it delivers value with the minimum time and effort.

Existe poco criterio por aquellas que son de otro lenguaje, ya que dependiendo de la nacionalidad y lenguaje uno aplicara su lengua materna y no el lenguaje que desarrolla el curso, aunque claro uno lo toma en ingles pero uno lo usa para poder adquirir las habilidades para poder aplicarlas. Desarrollar un poco más de tolerancia.
