What does Communication mean?

Communication is the conveying information so messages are received and understood.

What is Verbal and Non Verbal Communication?

Verbal: Verbal Communication is the involvement of words like in a conversation, or on a soccer field, or even playing a bored game with friends.

Nonverbal: Nonverbal Communication involves sending messages without using words such as body language, the way someone dresses, or the way someone acts.

What type of Slang words are there?

What is an "I" message and a "You" message?

"I Message"

An I message is when you take ownership of you're feelings. You tell people what you feel instead of criticizing the other person or people. An example would be "When I think you are ignoring me, I feel hurt."

"You Message"

A you message is when you accuse some for something that they might have done or might have not done. For example "You embarrass me when you tell your so called funny stories about me to my friends."

Which is better to use?

An I message would be better to use than a You Message because with if you use a you message then you will come out hostile and it can start a fight with your friend. But if you use an I message you can explain your feeling without coming hostile and you can explain yourself more thouroughly.
