Introduction

The emotional factor can be profiled or designed to arouse a series of feelings in the audience. In communication, it is necessary to learn to manage emotions, not only of the audience, but also of future media professionals. A good communicator uses his body and mind as working tools in which moods and feelings interfere. It is necessary, in this sense, to provide students with the necessary resources to know themselves and interact with their peers, learning to optimize social relations, their stability and their communicative capacity. Students facing their first experience at university often undergo small periods of crisis and stress. The contract, the change, the search for new friends, the prejudices, the shyness... in these moments is when the oral expression begins to take greater prominence and relevance as a strategy. For this reason it is planned at the beginning of the academic year. It is intended, in short, to provide the student with communicative tools that improve their interaction with others from a professional approach.
