    Dear Friend

    As we all know that a good speaker is a good listener .So try to become first of all good listener.

    In order to strengthen your communication skills ,try to have conversation in English as much as possible.This is because:

    >>Our mind interprets two types of vocabulary :

    1.Active vocabulary : it contains words which we often use in day to day life.

    2.Passive : words which we read anywhere.

    Generally we use our regional language so our active vocabulary contains words of that language and so whenever we try to communicate in other language we face difficulty.

    >>Read good newspapers

    >>Listen to standard news channels

    >>Work on phonetics

    >>Practice as much as possible.

    Hope the information helps you as much as you expect .For any other assistance please do not forget to leave a message here .We will get back to you as soon as possible.

    Enjoy your life and all the best for your career.

    Dear friend,

    Communication means effective transfer of information between one person to another or many.

    For developing communication skills the best way is to see or hear people talk.

    The best solution is at BBC interviews available on their official website or on you tube.

    It is indeed helpful for interviews in placement recruitment.

    Wish you all the best.
