I experienced two written, two general and one interpersonal skills barrier to effective communication. The two written barriers were, a job application letter with constant use of errors and a formal letter with inappropriate structure and language. The two general barriers were, a presentation with inaccurate information and a presentation given with background distractions. Finally, the interpersonal barrier was a presentation given with the incorrect tone of voice and body language respectively.
Within the group discussions, I realised I would have to say something to get a mark which meant I had to raise the volume of my voice.
