Summary This guide introduces a range of techniques and methods for teaching communication skills. It is not comprehensive, but does give some practical starting points. The topics covered are as follows: Taking part in discussions, Talks and presentations, Reading and understanding, Spelling, Punctuation, Sentence structure, Writing documents.
