    3 star(s)

    You also have to make sure that the message is told in a way so the person you are talking to will understand it easily. If you want to send out effective communication, you also have to ask yourself why you are telling this message, and what do you want the receiver to take away. If you do not know what the objective of the message is, there will be no hopes of the communication process being a success. That is why it should always be clear what the objectives of communication are.

    The television shows one watches, and the clothes a person buys affect social class. School, work, religious, and home lives are also linked to the influence of social classes. Schools and the workplace are greatly influenced by social class. The look of employment is changing because workers can no longer expect to work their way up through a company. Many companies look outside of the company for people with the right educational background instead of hiring from within. For people to move up in the social hierarchy, they must obtain higher education. Instead of spending years at a lower level position, people are spending more time in school and moving directly into management.

    Barriers of Communication

    3 star(s)

    A way to overcome this barrier is by using the individual's preferred spoken language to communicate or get an interpreter to help you. If someone has disabilities, you wouldn't feel comfortable talking to them because if they are blind you wouldn't have eye contact and if they are deaf you wouldn't know how to explain something to them. You should allow sufficient time for the person to make you understand the message they are trying to send to you, repeating the message would also help them, because if they have a misunderstanding, and you repeated the message, it would clear the misunderstanding and would be easier to understand.

Activity 2 was more complex as I couldn't use the same type of communications- like eye contact and facial expression, which would be useless in this kind of situation as the service user had just had both their eyes operated in and dressed.
