Teaching has been my passion and I love teaching with various innovative, creative and interactive methods. I truly believe that this is one of the best teaching methods to discuss with students and ask them to learn, review and understand the topic with discussion.
Here, for your reference I have prepared some useful content based on your syllabus. Read, Explore and understand it and discuss with your friends and family.
Lets learn Personal Communication.
WHAT IS PERSONAL COMMUNICATION?
Personal communications may be private letters, memos, emails, personal interviews or telephone conversations. Personal communications are only cited in text and not included in the reference list, as the information is unable to be retrieved by others.
Interapersonal communication is a communicator's internal use of language or thought. It can be useful to envision intrapersonal communication occurring in the mind of the individual in a model which contains a sender, receiver, and feedback loop.
Intrapersonal communication is the communication that occurs within an individual.
An individual uses this type of communication for various purposes such as analyzing situations, clarifying concepts, and reflecting upon phenomena.
There are three elements that govern intrapersonal communication, namely self-concept, perception and expectation.
An individual employs certain methods to communicate within themselves and these are internal discourse where thinking, concentration and analyzing occur, solo vocal communication which involves speaking out aloud to oneself, and solo written communication that encompasses writing not intended for others.
Interpersonal communication is the process by which people exchange information, feelings, and meaning through verbal and non-verbal messages: it is face-to-face communication.
Interpersonal communication on the other hand is the type of communication that takes place between people.
People communicate with each other for a number of reasons such as to explain, to teach, to inquire, and to inform.
The channel of interpersonal communication consists of four basic elements; sender, message, medium and receiver.
There are verbal and non-verbal forms of communication that are used to conduct interpersonal communication and these include letters, signs, notes, text messages, e-mails, memos as well as face-to-face conversations.
EXAMPLE OF PERSONAL COMMUNICATION

· telephone conversations,

WHY DO WE NEED PERSONAL COMMUNICATION
Having at least a basic understanding of your own style is very important to building better relationships in your personal and professional life.
You may find yourself in situations where someone’s communication style clashes with your own, leading to conflict in the workplace.
Alternatively, you may have a communication style that other people find difficult to understand, which means that you could struggle to get your message across.
“Good communication opens doors… and poor communication closes them.
Communication is the single most important key to success in the workplace. If you can’t communicate with confidence and credibility, you may get passed over for promotions, have a difficult time relating to coworkers and colleagues, and bear the brunt of misunderstandings and mistakes.” Fred Pryor
