Body Language
« on: November 28, 2010, 06:17:11 am »

If you look at Chinglish as Chinese-English then a baby learning Chinese could be said to be speaking Chinfant, Chinese-infant.  ;D

An infant learning a language must rely on body language and expression. Body language is natural and most often universal, e.g. smile, cry, an injury, sorrow, joy, interest, excitement and boredom.

Using body language will improve the effectiveness of communication where words fail.

Communication is influenced by 3 major factors
1. Prior Knowledge - what you have learnt
2. Life Experience - what you have lived
3. Cultural Awareness - what you understand about people and societies
The combination of these dictates the range and depth of ones ability to communicate.

Communication can also be divided into 3 distinct sections
1. Actual Words Used - the mechanics of language (10%)
2. Intonation and Expression - what you hear (35%)
3. Body Language - what you see (55%)
What students are taught is only 1/10th of skills required.

I can't find which one you are referring to, as I found that they all work.

It works for me so it's likely be your cookie settings.
