Communication is a very important aspect of life. It can be used in many different forms based on the situation. There are five main types of communication: verbal, aural, non-verbal, written, and visual. These different types of communication can be used in different settings. For instance, if one was in a quiet room and they need to express something to another person, without disturbing others, they might need to use some form of non-verbal, written, or visual communication.
Much like there are different types of communication, there are also different tones and styles of communication. For example, one might speak differently to their family members as they would with a friend. Generally, people use slang and do not speak in a professional manner as they would when speaking to family members or somebody at the workplace. People tend to speak more properly and politely when around somebody from work or a family member. Although it is expected to be polite to family members, one's body language and actions may be slightly different when in contact with a person from work. For instance, you might greet a family member by giving them a hug, but you would greet your boss by shaking their hand. When talking to my mentor I will be polite, informative, and listen actively. As for my body language, I will have good posture, proper facial expressions, and be inviting. When I am speaking to my mentor or I will also make sure to have the correct tone and use proper grammar when speaking to them face to face or by written form, whether it be through a text or email.
