The ability to communicate is the primary factor that distinguish human
beings from animals. And it is the ability to communicate well which
distinguishes one individual from another.
The fact is that apart from the basic necessi t ies, one needs to
be equipped with habits for good communication skills, thus this is
what will make one a happy and successful social being.
In order to develop these habits, one need to first acknowledge
the fact that they need to improve communication skills from time to time.
They need to take stock of the way how they interact and the direction
in which their work and personal relations are going. The only constant
in l ife is change, the more one accepts one’s strengths and works
towards deal ing wi th their shor tcomings, special ly in the area of
communica t ion ski l l s , the be t ter wi l l be the i r interact ions and
the more their social popularity.
To dominated quest ion that comes here is: How to improve
c ommu n i c a t i o n s k i l l s ? Th e a n swe r i s s imp l e . On e c a n f i n d
plenty of l i terature on this. There are also exper ts, who conduct
workshops and seminar s based on communicat ion ski l ls of men
and women. In fact , a large number of companies are bringing in
t ra ine r s to regula r ly make se s s ions on the subject , in order to
help their work force maintain better interpersonal work relat ions.
Today effective communication skills have become a predominant factor
even whi le recrui t ing employees . Whi le interviewing candidates,
most interviewers judge them on the basis of the skills they communicate with.
They believe that some skills can be improvised on the job; but ability to
communicate wel l is impor tant , as every employee becomes the
representing face of the company.
There are trainers, who special ized in del ivering custom-made
programs on the subject. Through the sessions they not only facilitate
bet ter communicat ion ski l ls in the workplace, but also look into
the problems in the manner of being able to convey messages effectively.
1. 将 which改为that。这里的句型是强调句“it is…… that……”;
2. 将 thus改为as或者because。后一小句是原因，不是结果。
3. 去掉how。“the way”后可以直接用状语从句。“how”已经有“the way of”的语法意义，
相当于“in a way or manner”.
4. 在 the more前面加上连接词 and。两个小句之间缺少表示承接关系的连接词。
5. 将 specially改为especially。这句插入语是表示特别列举，副词当然用especially.
6. 将 dominated改为dominating。这样-ing分词形式和 question的逻辑关系才对。
7. make改为 have或者 deliver。“have / deliver sessions”指上课、开会等，搭配合理。
8. ability前面加定冠词 the，以此表示定指。
9. 两种改法。 (1)将specialized 改为specialize。 (2)在who和 specialized之间加上系动词
10. 将 problems改为problem。“look into the problem”是使用频率高的搭配(根据语料库检
索) ，这一句中的“in the manner of doing”语义上也合适，有同学可能改为“in a manner
of doing” ;但英语的实际使用中常见的是“in a manner of speaking”，很少有其他形式。
