Module 3


A communication can be verbal when we use words to communicate with people. When we hear someone talking, we notice whether they are friendly or unfriendly, interested or bored, certain or uncertain, and so on. Therefore, communication includes both what we say and how we say. Body language, also called nonverbal communication is an important part. Different cultures may use different signals, though: shaking head from side to side means “no” in many cultures, but “yes” in some, for example in parts of Bulgaria and Sri Lanka. Feelings can be shown through body language without thinking about it. For example, if a person is bored, he or she may look away from the person speaking to them. Some businesspersons think that the best way for business communication is face-to-face communication for getting information across and things done in business. People also like e-mail and other forms of electronic communication.

1. Letters. 4. Handwritten notes.
