3 Main Types of Communication

When communication occurs, it typically happens in one of three ways: verbal, nonverbal and visual.

The words we choose (Verbal communication). These words may be both spoken and written. What we say in words, as the result of the elaboration of our thoughts. The more simple, direct and concrete this is, the more effective it will be. It includes face-to-face, telephone, radio or television and other media.

How we say the words (Paraverbal communication).  It refers to the messages that we transmit through the tone, pitch, and pacing of our voices. It is how we say something, not what we say. A sentence can convey entirely different meanings depending on the emphasis on words and the tone of voice. 

Body language (Non-verbal communication) like facial expressions, gestures displayed through body language (kinesics) and the physical distance between the communicators (proxemics). Having good control of our body, of our presence and trying to give a physical form to our content will increase your level of communication.
