“The world’s problems could be solved if we kept talking”
Prof. Stephen Hawking

Everything that we do throughout each day involves communication in one form or another.

    1.             At work
    2.             At home
    3.             In politics
    4.             In commerce
    5.             In sport
    6.             In entertainment
    7.             In financial world

When communication breaks down the consequences can be disastrous.


    •    Education is all about communication – not only of hard facts but also of thoughts and ideas and proposals on which to base discussion and debate.
    •    A good teacher who can effectively communicate facts, ideas and theories will turn out well-qualified pupils.
    1.    The problem is the lack of teaching the pupils how to communicate their knowledge to others.
