The six lectures presented here were given in Dornach, Switzerland from the 11th to the 16th of October, 1921. These lectures formed the Swiss Orientation Course, also known as, the Speakers' Course.
These lectures address: effective speaking, clarifying thought-content, knowing one's audience, verbal formulation, the ethics of speaking, the pedantic effect of lecturers, lyrical speaking, speech exercises, repetition, and full immersion in one's topic so that the speaker will be listened to and heard.
In the Collected Edition of Rudolf Steiner's works, the volume containing the German texts is entitled, Anthroposophie, soziale Dreigliederung und Redenkunst. Orientierungskurs fuer die oeffentliche Wirksamkeit mit besonderem Himblick auf die Schweitz (Vol. 339 in the Bibliographic Survey, 1961).
