    Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the question.             The importance of communication skills cannot be underestimated, especially so, in the teaching – learning process. Teaching is generally considered as only fifty per cent knowledge and fifty per cent interpersonal or communication skills. For a teacher, it is not just important to give a lecture rich in content that provides abundant information about the subject or topic in question, but a successful teacher develops an affinity with, an understanding of, and a harmonious interrelationship with her pupils. Building rapport becomes her primary task in the classroom. But what exactly is rapport? Rapport is a sympathetic relationship or understanding that-allows you to look at the world from someone else's perspective. Making other people feel that you understand them creates a strong bond. Building rapport is the first step to better communication – the primary goal of all true educators.Communication skills for teachers are thus as important as their in-depth knowledge of the particular subject which they teach. To a surprising degree, how one communicates determines one's effectiveness as a teacher. A study on communication styles suggests that 7% of communication takes place through words, 38% through voice intonation and 55% through body language.             Much of teaching is about sending and receiving messages. The process of communication is composed of three elements: the source (sender, speaker, transmitter or instructor), the symbols used in composing and transmitting of the message (words or signs), and the receiver (listener, reader or student). The three elements are dynamically interrelated since each element is dependent on the others for effective communication to take place. Effective communication is all about conveying your message to the other people clearly and unambiguously. It's also about receiving information the others are sending to you, with as little distortion as possible. Doing this involves effort from both the sender and the receiver. And it's a process that can be fraught with error, with messages muddled by the sender, or misinterpreted by the recipient. When this isn't detected it can cause tremendous confusion, wasted effort and missed opportunity.             Good communication skills are a prerequisite for those in the teaching profession. Carefully planned and skilfully delivered messages can issue invitations to students that school is a place to share ideas, investigate and collaborate with others. Effective communication is essential for a well- run classroom. A teacher who is able to communicate well with students can inspire them to learn and participate in class and encourage them to come forth with their views, thus creating a proper rapport. Although this sounds simple and obvious, it requires much more than a teacher saying something out loud to a student. They must also realise that all students have different levels of strengths and weaknesses.   Choose the word which is most OPPOSITE in meaning of the word printed in bold as used in the passage.   Abundant

    • A.

      Small

    • E.

    Correct Answer
    B. Little
    Explanation
    The word "abundant" means a large amount or plentiful. The opposite of "abundant" would be "little," meaning a small amount or not enough.

Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the question.             The importance of communication skills cannot be underestimated, especially so, in the teaching – learning process. Teaching is generally considered as only fifty per cent knowledge and fifty per cent interpersonal or communication skills. For a teacher, it is not just important to give a lecture rich in content that provides abundant information about the subject or topic in question, but a successful teacher develops an affinity with, an understanding of, and a harmonious interrelationship with her pupils. Building rapport becomes her primary task in the classroom. But what exactly is rapport? Rapport is a sympathetic relationship or understanding that-allows you to look at the world from someone else's perspective. Making other people feel that you understand them creates a strong bond. Building rapport is the first step to better communication – the primary goal of all true educators.Communication skills for teachers are thus as important as their in-depth knowledge of the particular subject which they teach. To a surprising degree, how one communicates determines one's effectiveness as a teacher. A study on communication styles suggests that 7% of communication takes place through words, 38% through voice intonation and 55% through body language.             Much of teaching is about sending and receiving messages. The process of communication is composed of three elements: the source (sender, speaker, transmitter or instructor), the symbols used in composing and transmitting of the message (words or signs), and the receiver (listener, reader or student). The three elements are dynamically interrelated since each element is dependent on the others for effective communication to take place. Effective communication is all about conveying your message to the other people clearly and unambiguously. It's also about receiving information the others are sending to you, with as little distortion as possible. Doing this involves effort from both the sender and the receiver. And it's a process that can be fraught with error, with messages muddled by the sender, or misinterpreted by the recipient. When this isn't detected it can cause tremendous confusion, wasted effort and missed opportunity.             Good communication skills are a prerequisite for those in the teaching profession. Carefully planned and skilfully delivered messages can issue invitations to students that school is a place to share ideas, investigate and collaborate with others. Effective communication is essential for a well- run classroom. A teacher who is able to communicate well with students can inspire them to learn and participate in class and encourage them to come forth with their views, thus creating a proper rapport. Although this sounds simple and obvious, it requires much more than a teacher saying something out loud to a student. They must also realise that all students have different levels of strengths and weaknesses.   Which of the following are the three elements of communication as per the passage?

    • A.

      Source, Signs and Students

    • B.

      Source, Sender and Speaker

    • C.

      Signs, Words and Students

    • D.

      Instructor, Listener and Reader

    • E.

      Transmitter, Student and Receiver

    Correct Answer
    A. Source, Signs and Students
    Explanation
    The passage states that the three elements of communication are the source (sender, speaker, transmitter or instructor), the symbols used in composing and transmitting the message (words or signs), and the receiver (listener, reader or student). Therefore, the correct answer is "Source, Signs and Students."

    • A.

      The body language and gestures account for 38% of communication and outweighs the voice intonation

      More than 90% of our communication is not about content but about our tone and body language

    • E.

      Teaching is fifty per cent knowledge and fifty per cent interpersonal or communication skills

    Correct Answer
    D. More than 90% of our communication is not about content but about our tone and body language
    Explanation
    The passage states that a study on communication styles suggests that 7% of communication takes place through words, 38% through voice intonation, and 55% through body language. This means that more than 90% of our communication is not about content but about our tone and body language.
