Body Language Skills Course in Singapore
Body language is of nonverbal communication in which physical behaviours, as opposed to words, are used to express or convey information. Such action includes facial expressions, body posture, gestures, eye movement, touch and the use of space. Body language is in both animals and humans, but this course also focuses on interpretations of human body language. It is also known as kinesics.
Body language must not be mixed with sign language, assign languages are full languages like spoken languages and have their complex grammar systems, as well as being able to show the basic properties that exist in all languages. On the other hand, Body language does not have a grammar order and must be construed broadly, instead of having an absolute definition corresponding with a particular movement, so it’s not a language like sign language and is termed as a “language” due to popular culture.
In a community, there are agreed-upon ideas of a particular behaviour. Definitions may vary from country to country, or from culture to culture. As a result, there is controversy about whether body language is common. Body language is a subset of nonverbal communication, complements verbal communication in social communication. Researchers conclude that nonverbal communication estimates for the bulk of information transferred during interpersonal interactions. It also helps to establish the relationship between two people and regulates interaction but can be ambiguous.
