Answer preview

Verbal communication can be defined as sending messages through the inspiration of spoken words in various languages to the recipient of information (Alberts, Nakayama, and Martin, 2015). This mode of communication entails the act of speaking to express opinions and ideas. There are several differences between verbal and non-verbal communication. While verbal communication utilizes a formal way of transiting information, non-verbal communication uses a non-formal approach. Another difference is that non-verbal communication applies indirect non-verbal cues such as facial expressions, body language, and gestures without any form of speech. On the contrary, verbal communication uses direct speech to communicate thoughts and emotions.
