Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

This is a very good essay though I do not feel that it is quite complete. It discusses some barriers to communication well but there are a few missing or requiring a more detailed explanation.

There is good use of examples but the work could be enhanced by suggesting ways to overcome the barriers.
