What is communication?

It may seem like a simple question, but once you really start to think about it, it isn't. Most of us automatically think of spoken language as the main means of communication, so we set out to learn another language in order to better communicate with business partners, friends and perhaps even family around the world. Spoken language, however, is not the only means by which we as humans communicate. There are some universal expressions and gestures that aid communication, for example:

  • a smile
  • a frown
  • a fist
  • a hug

Tone of voice is also important in most languages, as is register (showing how formal or informal the speech is) and body language. There has been a long-held belief that spoken language may only represent 7 % of communication, but that has now been debunked, as many have reported.
