As language teachers we all understand the power of words and the importance of communicating things clearly and in the right way; but are we always practising what we preach? When we speak to students or parents, or as managers to teachers and staff we need to be able to deliver a message that is understood by the listener in the same way we mean it as the speaker. We need to frame our words in the right way, ensure we are highlighting the right information and leave people feeling that they have benefited from their communication with us - are we doing it all wrong? Probably not, but let's slow down, take a step back and think about other ways we could say things.
