Accommodate audience and context needs in oral communication

Speech is our primary means of communication with others. Perhaps because it usually comes naturally, we sometimes forget that there are skills attached to communication with others which can make our work and social lives more meaningful. 

If we lack skill in this area we are in danger of embarrassment and misunderstanding (we can fail to understand others, and they can fail to understand us). In this Module we are going to look at some of the ways in which we can maintain effective communication.
