Most of us would love to learn as many languages as possible, but in my case I would also like to learn about body language, how to read the signs and gestures? The non-verbal communications is considered to be one of the most important way a person expresses himself. Sometimes, when the words are hard to come out, the whole body will talk instead.

The body language is precisely known as kinesics, which is a significant aspect of modern communications and relationships also used in many types of therapies. This type of  language plays a key role in effective communication. Therefore , body language is very related subject to management and leadership, and to all aspects of work and business where communications can be seen and physically observed among people. It is also very pertinent to relationships out of work, for example in dating, families and parenting.
