Nonverbal and verbal communication
The first thing is to understand what the communication is.
The basis of communication is the interaction between people. Communicate, it means to speak for and to listen. To speak for it’s: to formulate affirmatives sentences in the purpose to give information and to ask questions to obtain information or to check the information.
To listen it’s: to be quiet when the interlocutor speaks, to try to understand what the interlocutor says, to observe the body language.
There are two types of communication: the verbal and the nonverbal ones.
Verbal communication is one way for people to communicate face-to-face. It is sounds, words, speaking, and language. Some words may be imitative of natural sounds, but others may come from expressions of emotion, such as laughting or crying. Words alone have no meaning. Only people can put meaning into words.
Over 3,000 languages and major dialects are spoken in the world today. The huge variety of languages usually creates difficulties between different languages, but even within a single language there can be many problems in understanding. These misunderstanding are emphasised because people uses the nonverbal communication too.
