Clear Communication

This classic sketch illustrates the importance of clear communication. Although it’s spoken, not written, there are interesting lessons to draw from it.

For example, contextual information helps make the meaning clear, and it also means that you can’t rely on automated proofing tools such as the spell-checker to correct errors. Like the notice I saw at the gym yesterday, which reads “Hand in you’re ticket to the front desk.”

Anyway, enjoy!

I saw a newspaper headline the other day;

'Man Pronounced Dead"

which must confuse many people, especially anyone learning English!
