This fun one-hour workshop, conducted in Spoken English, will demonstrate the importance of identifying main ideas in a given message.  Using multimedia as source “language”, participants will be challenged to take on various roles in the communication process (sender and receiver). The presenter will help lead group discussion and introspection that will sure to be beneficial for all levels of experience.
