While the world is still facing and battling against this COVID19 pandemic, it has become difficult for us to do face-to-face conversation. However, it does not mean we have lost the capacity to reach out to others. We continue to find ways to communicate. Yes, we are constantly in a state of giving and receiving information. Problems arise when one does not receive or understand, the message sent in the communication process as it was intended or when one subconsciously sends a nonverbal message that contradicts with the spoken word.

It will also provide you with opportunities to continually improve the acquisition and application of communicative skills through active and interactive engagement in the activities prepared for you.

The lesson jump-starts with the basic definition of communication, down to its function, nature, elements, and processes that will help you achieve your role as an effective communicator.
