Teacher essay summary

4 star(s)

This essay is very good on the areas that it is discussing. The writer has organised the work in a good way that allows them to build and explain types of communication. However I feel that they should have discussed non-verbal communication in greater detail - body language etc.

To extend it, the writer could discuss the communication cycle and how information is exchanged between service provider and user.
