(1 point) Communication in general is process of sending and receiving messages that enables humans to share knowledge, attitudes, and skills. Although we usually identify communication with speech, communication is composed of two dimensions - verbal and nonverbal. Nonverbal communication has been defined as communication without words. It includes apparent behaviors such as facial expressions, eyes, touching, tone of voice, as well as less obvious messages such as dress, posture and spatial distance between two or more people. Activity or inactivity, words or silence all have message value: they influence others and these others, in turn, respond to these communications and thus they are communicating. Commonly, nonverbal communication is learned shortly after birth and practiced and refined throughout a person's lifetime. Children first learn nonverbal expressions by watching and imitating, much as they learn verbal skills. Young children know far more than they can verbalize and are generally more adept at reading nonverbal cues than adults are because of their limited verbal skills and their recent reliance on the nonverbal to communicate. As children develop verbal skills, nonverbal channels of communication do' not cease to exist although become entwined in the total communication process. 1. According to the writer, ________. A. Nonverbal language is only used by the deaf and the mute. B. One cannot communicate in both verbal and .nonverbal language. C. Those who can listen and talk should not use nonverbal language. D. People communicate with both verbal and nonverbal language. 2. Which is not included in nonverbal communication? A. words B. spatial distance C. facial expressions D. tone of voice 3. We can learn from the text that ________. A. nonverbal can never get any responses B. most people do not like nonverbal communication C. even silence has message value D. touching is not accepted in communicating 4. Human beings ________. A. have learnt how to communicate in nonverbal language through books B. can communicate in nonverbal language only when they are mature C. have learnt how to communicate in nonverbal language since a child D. communicate in nonverbal language much less than they do in verbal language 5.
