Context is the situation or setting within which communication takes place, or the circumstances that surround a particular piece of communication. Context plays a very important part in how a message is encoded and decode. The same message can have a completely different meaning depending on the situation, since emotions and reactions to ideas and events vary in different situations.

Whether we communicate orally or in writing every message begins with context. Context is a very vast field that includes country, culture, organization and internal and external stimuli. It is a fact that can't be denied that every country, every culture and every organization or company has its own conventions for
processing and communicating information.

But feedback is an essential part of successful communication. It is receiver's response to the sender's message. Feedback provides continuity in the communication. It indicates effective understanding or misunderstanding of the message. It also stimulates further communication and discussion. Both sender and receiver need feedback. Feedback can be oral or written. It can also be action such as receiving the ordered items. Senders need feedback to determine the success or failure of the communication. It is important to the speaker to determine how the message is being received and helps receivers understand how their behaviour affects others.

Communication is a process of transmitting and receiving verbal and non-verbal messages. Communication is considered effective when it achieves the desired reaction or response from the receiver. Simply stated, communication is a two way process of exchanging ideas or information. Communication includes these components, context, sender-encoder, message, and medium.
Every message whether oral or written begins with context. Context is a broad field that includes country, culture, organization, and external and internal stimuli. Every country, every culture, and every company or organization has its own conventions for processing and communicating information.
When you send a message you are the encoder the writer or speaker, depending on whether your message is written or oral. You try to choose symbols, usually words that express your message so that the receiver will understand it and react with the response you desire.
The message is the core idea you wish to communicate, it consists of both verbal symbols and nonverbal symbols.
Your message channel depends on all the contextual factors discussed above and the nature of the message itself. Your choice includes electronic mail, the printed word, or sound. Like message content the choice of medium is influenced by the relationship between the sender and the receiver.
