Unit 1 Lesson 1 Definition of Oral Communication In this lesson, I have learned and know about what is Oral Communication. Oral communication is known as a process of sound representations which involves speaking and listening. They are both essential in the expression of idea through the association with words. In our everyday life, we always communicate to our friends, family, relatives, classmates and anyone else. We communicate in the mean of speaking and listening, but what or who are the speaker and listener? The speaker is the person who are speaking or giving information to the listener. You will know if he or she is the speaker when he is talking. While the listener is the person who are listening to the speaker. He/she understanding what is the speaker wanted to say. Unit 1 Lesson 2 The Process of Oral Communication In this chapter, we are able to know how the communication goes by and where does it come from. The process has six (6) stages. The process begins with the presence of stimulus brought about by an idea. That’s why we always have topics to talk about and that is the first stage. The second stage is where the brain is involve because the brain identifies and evaluates the situation which may trigger the person to react. In the third stage, the ideas and thoughts are encoded into language symbols or words known and understood by both speaker and listener. While the fourth stage, this is where the speaker is ready to express his/her thought to the listener. The speaker uses his/her voice, touch, physical presence, body movements, facial expressions and other channels available. So if your friend does something to you while he is saying or explaining something don’t be surprised. The fifth stage is where the sound waves were travelling into the air towards to the listener. This may also allow the spontaneous occurrence of hand movements. And finally, the sixth stage is where the message is brought to the listener and the listener sees the body reaction of the speaker. The listener senses what is going on because he visualizes it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
