There are different types of communication both verbal and non verbal. People can communicate with one another even if they are not sitting next to each other with the help of Phone, Emails, Fax, Chatting, text messaging and so on. One can also conduct a class of meeting if he/she is sitting far with the help of e-conferencing.

Businesses also communicate with their customers with the help of both verbal and nonverbal ways. Like by showing ads on Tv/ billboard or print ads in the newspaper.

The different forms of communication are verbal and non-verbal communication. Under verbal communication, we have oral and written communication. These types of communications are used in our day-to-day activities. Oral communication is not really used in formal situations. It is normally used in our interpersonal communication. The audience must not really be educated for effective communication to take place.

In today's world the word communication has taken on an entirely new meaning. However, it can broadly be categorised into two forms; verbal and non-verbal communication.

Verbal communication is one that is largely concerned with words. This doesn't really mean that it should essentially involve speech. Any kind of message that is being portrayed using words and the alphabet as a medium can be classified as verbal communication.

The other kind of communication is the non verbal communication which can take place through any of the sensory channels of sight, sound, smell, touch or taste. The entire process of communication can be divided into the major parts which include the form, the medium and the destination. Another concept that lies between these is 'noise' which is referred to as anything hat hampers the communication.
