Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

This is a good essay that discusses the strategies of over coming communication barriers. It could do with a little more explanation in places and some discussion of theories would help to enhance the work.

The writer really needs to ensure that they spell check or read through work before submitting. There are a few times that thus distracts from the writing.
