About the course
Most people picked up language naturally as children, learning vocabulary, framing sentences, and expressing thoughts or needs. Effectively communicating as adults, however, requires a bit more effort. The words we choose, tone of voice, facial and body movements – all this contributes to the ultimate message that must be spontaneously translated by the listener.
After participating in this course you will be more knowledgeable about the fundamentals of interpersonal communication, including:
- Active listening
- Verbal, paraverbal, and non-verbal dynamics
