People communicate with one another every day, all day long. How do people communicate? And why do some people communicate more effectively than others? That's exactly what this lesson will discuss. As a public speaker, it's important to understand the communication process and how it works. This is a process that happens again and again—and the better you understand it, the better prepared you are to speak effectively in public. In this lesson, you'll explore the basic components of communication, such as senders and receivers, verbal and nonverbal communication, and noise and feedback.
