Course Objective

A large part of our life is spent to communicate with others. It is necessary to share your thoughts and understand the feelings of someone else, to function in any society of the world. The difficulty in communication is not surprising, as it is a matter of bringing counseling to couples and many other things we are struggling with.

Course Content

Encoding and decoding of transmissions is based on our learning to communicate in the first stages of life. Without much confusion in this regard, all words are really only symbols representing certain things, and each person can have a slightly different understanding of the word level.
