Oral or verbal communication

This is communication by word of mouth. In oral communication, speech or talk is the widely adopted tool of communication. The message is received through our ears. It may also be achieved through the use of mechanical devices such as telephone, radio or even a public address system.

What sorts of oral communication do you think Health Extension Practitioners may use in their work?

Most health workers will talk to individuals face-to-face, whether in person or perhaps on the phone. They will also be involved in group discussions and also give talks. Depending on their circumstances they might possibly be involved in using audiotapes to spread health messages.
