Human beings communicate with each other using a medium called language. Each and every culture on earth possesses a language which is unique in its own right. At the present moment, the business world places a lot of emphasis on the English Language as the lingua franca for trade and business among nations. This is an indisputable fact. For a nation to stay ahead of its competition in the business world, it is vital that that nation equips its citizens with the necessary knowledge and mastery in English. In addition, a vast knowledge is exchanged daily on the internet in the English Language. Anyone who doesn’t possess knowledge in English will be left behind. New discoveries are made and revealed to the world via the English Language. Such is the power and reach of the English Language in the world today. Hence, the Effective Communication training is designed specifically for one to equip oneself with the necessary skills to communicate in any situation effectively and persuasively. The first day covers the English Language study and how it is related to the communicative aspect in the second and third days. Sentences play an important role in communication. How sentences are ‘built up’ and ‘broken up’ is covered in this section. The Grammar and Vocabulary sections enable one to hone his skills in writing and speaking English correctly. The second and third days of this training cover the ‘technical’ aspects of the communicative process. It involves a little study of psychology, the use of English Language and the practical knowledge that is needed in communication. The second and third days of the training form the gist of communication which is necessary for one to achieve his objectives with the desired results.

SENSATION AND PERCEPTION
How messages are conveyed from the body to the mind is explained in this section.
THE FOUR SKILLS
To master any language, one needs to be efficient in the four skills – speaking, writing, reading and listening.
MOTIVE AND PURPOSE
This section makes a distinction between motives and purposes in the communication process.
AUTHOR, AUDIENCE AND OCCASION
This section deals with the subject-matter and the way it is delivered by the participant to his audience according to the occasion.
PURPOSE AND THESIS
What is the central point that we want to make and what we want to accomplish in our communication to others is dealt with in this section.
This training is geared more towards the ‘HOW TO COMMUNICATE’ rather than regurgitating to the participants what communication is all about. (Most people already know what communication is all about. The market is saturated with such training.) This ‘HOW TO’ training will enhance the participant’s skill of communicating effectively and clearly with the required results. The skill of communicating is to understand and use the language to convey one’s thoughts and feelings effortlessly.
