Linguistic Barriers

Linguistic Barriers

Communication refers to the transmission of thoughts, information and commands by employing the sensory channels. it involves sender and the receiver. The message should be ideally conveyed undiminished and without any distortion. However there are some barriers which hinder the smooth flow of communication. Pre-Primary Teachers Training has listed them below:

Language/Linguistic barriers:

Pronunciation: If the pronunciation of a teacher is improper than it may result in problem in understanding the message by the students.

Similar sounding words: These are the words which sound similar but have different meaning. Example Write and Right, Principal and Principle. The above two words are quite different from each other. if not communicated property it may lead in miscommunication among students.

Speed: The speed of the message to be conveyed should be appropriate. It the speed of a teacher is too fast then the result will be that the students might not understand the message properly.

Structure of the sentence: If the structure or the sentence is not framed properly then the message will be distorted. Students might not understand what the teacher wants to Convey.

Unclear graphics and symbols: A teacher uses charts, maps for better understanding of the subject. If the graphics and symbols used in maps are unclear than it may lead to misunderstanding among students. 6. Regional accent A person is influenced by his mother-tongue. The inhibition of mother tongue causes hindrance in communication and may lead to misinterpretation of message.

Physical barriers

Noise: The environment in and outside the classroom should be appropriate for effective teaching-learning process. However, if the environment is not calm then it may hinder the communication process. Example — classroom or school near main road.

Mechanical/Technical failure: If the technical failure arises then it may hinder the smooth flow of communication. Example – Failure of mikes during function.

Environmental Problem: If the factors like heavy rains, colds climates electric failure result in environmental problems which pose problem in communication.

Invisibility: If there is reflection of light from windows on the blackboard, or if the handwriting of the teacher is too small to understand, then it may result in invisibility of the written matter on C.B for the students.

Media Audio-visual aids: If the audio-visual aids are not used properly to impart information to the students or if the information is not provided according to control matter then there will be hindrance in communication process.

Physiological barriers  by Online Early Childhood Education

Health: A person suffering from disease cannot concentrate in the class. This may result in barrier of communication.

Hearing problem: If the receiver has hearing problem, they the message conveyed by the sender cannot be understood and thus creating problem in communication.

Speech defects: Communication is a two way process. The message sent by the sender is understood by the receiver and if he wants to give feedback to the sender but suffers from speech defects than the communication process is distorted.

Hunger: Hunger is another barrier in communication process. Hunger diverts the mind of the receiver due to which the message conveyed by sender cannot be understood properly.
