个单词)。 Good communication skills are key to success in life, work and relationships. Without effective(有效的) communication, a message can turn into error, misunderstanding, or even disaster.
Communication is the process by which we exchange information between people. To communicate well is to understand and to be understood. Communication can be successful only when both the sender and the receiver understand the same information.
In today's highly informational and technological environment, it has become more important to have good communication skills. Here are some important steps to communicate effectively.
Know what you want to say and why. Understand clearly the purpose of your message. Know to whom you are communicating and why.
How will you say it? We all know that it's not always what you say, but how you say it , that matters. Begin by making eye contact. You show trust and confidence when you look at others in
the eyes when you speak. Second, pay attention to your body language, since it can say so much more than your words. By standing with your arms easily at your side, you tell others that you are open to hearing what they have to say.
Communication is a two-way street. After you have said what you have to say, stop and listen. Practise your listening skills. Be considerate of others are talking, listen carefully and never cut them off.
Many people believe that life has smiled to Yang Mi: at the age of 4, she got her first TV play role; at 16, she became a model for a fashion magazine; at 18, she went to her dream college —— Beijing Film Academy. Last year, the 24-year-old actress
played bad girl LuoQingchuan in the time-travelling TV play, Palace. The play became a big success and made Yang very famous.
Could she be any luckier? Yang doesn’t think luck had anything to do with her success. “Every chance is gained ( 获得）from the efforts I’ve made,” said Yang. People now think she’s very hard-working. She still remembers the time when people gave her the cold eyes. Some treated her with little respect. They didn’t want to help her in her time of need. “I have to thank them because they gave me the drive to prove myself,” she said. That’s why she is glad to help others when they are in need. This year, Yang became the ambassador(大使) for the Climate Group. She calls on people to join the Million-Miracle project and plant trees on China’s dry land. Together we’ll fight the bad weather!
