1-Nonverbal communication can be used in a multitude of ways. One way that can be used is by hand gestures. These gestures can really emphasize what the person is trying to convey to whomever they may be talking to. This is one of the most common and easiest forms of nonverbal communication in my opinion. Another nonverbal form of communication that we use without even noticing is facial expressions. These expressions can really show how a person feels about what they are talking about. Also, this can be used so the speaker can see what the reaction is from the audience. It is one of the most important forms of nonverbal communication and we use it without even noticing.


2-Two characteristics of expressing nonverbal communication is being able to express more emotion with nonverbal communication and also conveying more information than verbal communication. The importance of expressions are that it’s very easy to tell if someone is feeling happy or sad without explaining it. You can look at someone face and know if what they are about to say is going to be happy or sad. Nonverbal communication is much more effective than verbal communication. Someone can be telling you something, but if someone is saying the same thing but more active with their hands, you may believe them more than just the person talking with no nonverbal communication.
