Communication is a basic human right and is the mean's, through which we control our existence, make friends, build relationships, become independent, make choices and is the way we learn (Gray et al 2005). Therefore, communication is extremely important in all aspects of life, but especially within the teaching and learning environment. Reece and Walker (2003) cited that 'Communication is essentially about one person who sends a message which is received by a second person; however some form of channel, or means of communication is needed'. The manner in which a teacher portrays him or herself to students and how students perceive that teacher, is critical in developing a healthy atmosphere of learning (Huddleston et al, 2003). We as teachers all want to communicate in a style, which our student's will feel beneficial, but how do we identify the 'good' and 'bad' aspects of our role as communicators?
