It's helpful for the audience if you build variety into your communication, but it is even more crucial for the young and less educated people. Young people respond well to visual stimuli, such as pictures, video and models, web based communications or PowerPoint presentations can work well for the young people as well. Uses of examples A good way to help you audience understand your message is to give examples to illustrate your explanations. Use examples that draw on the lives of your listeners, or reflect their experience and interests.

(How far do you think you trust the Wikipedia website?) Some are even deliberately set up to deceive the reader or aim to fool you into reading someone else's opinion. Some of the spoof sites are set up for a joke, but it may not be possible to believe that they give accurate information. So when you researching on the internet, take care, because not everything you read will be true. Remember that much of what you read is opinion, and opinions are not facts.
