The purpose of group learning and development is to ensure that all learning styles are catered for and the ultimate goal of sharing knowledge is achieved. When using a group to deliver something new each individual can call on a fellow participant to confirm understanding. 1.2 Explain why delivery of learning and development must reflect group dynamics When delivering to a group it is important to consider, what is the normal behaviour within the group?

Their fundamental point is that what should be concentrated on the language learning is to associate the forms and meanings. Thus, practicing should be maintained by focusing on the target skills. They emphasize the importance of explicit knowledge in terms of teaching it relevantly to the context of learning, goals, and age of learners. Although the automatization which is acquired by implicit knowledge takes a long time, learners should maintain to practice and make their explicit
Facial expression also plays a major role in communication since the expression on our face say a lot about our mood. Eye contact also plays a vital role in effective communication. There are times when we experience words that come out of our mouth and the ways we communicate through our body language are totally different.

Regularly the receiver would select the nonverbal as it is more natural and it truly displays the speaker’s true feeling and intention.
However, even if initially people are making attributions to someone’s internal state, they can change this way of thinking and recognize outside situations. Only if someone is not distracted, because it involves a conscious effort to change these thoughts. Gilbert’s theory argues often people do not get to situational attributions if they are not able to cognitively because of distractions or they do not have the information to infer a situation affected the behavior. However, many people, as Wallace states, may not get to this step in the model because they simply do not care to see outside themselves at that moment. It can be extremely difficult for people to see past their own situation in the first place, especially in irritating situations like heavy traffic or a busy grocery store.
If we take notice, primates’ enclosures in zoos are usually designed to be similar between species. Branches are everywhere, they are usually outdoors, and the size is usually large. But non-human primates varied in distinctiveness. They prefer diverse type of environment, diet, branches, objects, and so on. Not all primates like to be in the outdoors and in a large size enclosure.
Communication is important and if we know more than one language, it is possible to communicate with more than one group of people. Also, we can help other to communicate as an interpreter in order for them to express their ideas. The second reason is job opportunities. Because we live in a heterogeneous society, it is important to have people who can interpret between one group to another. For example, as
The community has symbols that creates meaning, also contributing to their identification, because of those symbols a social worker get to be able to work with clients. STRENGTH The relationship between meaning of symbols and a person’s behavior, this theory provides a bond between how an individual behaves is related to the meaning of objects and events. Provides the ability to understand small scale human interaction, it enables the understanding of family interaction. Recognizes that beliefs and opinions of reality are changeable, the belief people have on something can actually change and become part of reality. Considers the social environment in which learning takes place.
Different cultures shouldn’t come between the communications of people as everyone is equally the same. However everyone perceives things in different ways, especially when it comes to communicating. Many other cultures can misunderstand the context of a message they may receive, it could be perceived in a positive or a negative way. Some words and expressions we use in this country can have a very different meaning in another culture. This is where you need to be careful when communicating with cultural differences.
The elements in figure 1.4 on page 4, are important for interpersonal communication. The elements are source/encoder, receiver/decoder, messages, feedback, feedforward, channel, noise, context, and competence. All of these elements are connected in some sort way. Any change in these elements can cause the slightest change in a conversation. These interpersonal communications elements are in a circular process as shown in figure 1.4.
2.3 Mediated Experiences in Social Interaction Mediated experiences in the case of social interaction differ from the other. It is because the experiences are highly related with the social interaction which had been mediated. The scope of the mediated experiences is wide where it comprises more range of information. According to Thompson, mediated experience is defined as the kind of experience that is acquired through mediated interaction or quasi-interaction. He has separated the mediated experience into four aspects where in the first aspect, it had been said that to experience events through the media is to experience events which are distant spatially from the practical context of daily life.
