* The process of verbal and nonverbal communication and the associated components of each.
Now and days, verbal and nonverbal communication are consider the backbone of our society. They are needed for all of us, in order to get along with each other.
Verbal communication involves more than just spoken language. It involves oral (spoken), visual (seen), written, and electronic communication. Non-verbal involves tone of voice, facial expression, and body movement.

* Differences between listening and hearing in communication.
Hearing and listening, though synonymous, are complete different things. Hearing is one of the five human senses and it is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations through an organ such as the ear. Hearing based on Merriam Webster definition is the process, function, or power of perceiving sound; specifically: the special sense by which noises and tones are received as stimuli. In hearing, vibrations are detected by the ear and then converted into nerve impulses and sent to the brain.
