Formal Communication

...Formal Communication If I was preparing a formal report for my accounting peers, my manager, and the owner of a business, I would essentially feel the need to write three different reports. Each individual or group of people will have different informational needs and different knowledge levels of the subject matter. This forces me to place how formal the report would be into three different levels which include low, medium, and high. Knowing how to read your audience and choose the right formality of the report is critical to improving communication. Ron Horton states “formalized communications can significantly enhance and improve safety, execution, and productivity” (Horton, 2012) . The report for my accounting peers would be on the low end of being formal. It is still formal, as most reports should be, but a little less intense as the other two reports. The report for my manager would fall in the medium category of being formal. You would not want this report to be as laid back as the one to the peers but not too formal because it is your boss and they usually have knowledge of the subject matter. Because your boss has the power to some decision making you want to increase the formality slightly from the report to your peers. Lastly, you have the report for the owner of a business who is your client. This report would fall under the level of high in formality. This person may have no knowledge of the message you are trying to convey which would make this......

Formal/Informal Learning Essay 1

...Over the years, between grade school and high school and now as an adult still trying to finish my undergraduate degree 10 years after I started it, I find that I’m the type of learner that must be interested in the topic or have a purpose for completing the class. Ever since I was a little girl, I was surrounded by distractions in my life that didn’t allow for me to properly focus on school. I was always able to complete the bare minimum to get by, but never really applied myself to my course studies, unless it was something that I was completely interested in. Studies that, looking back, actually allowed for my brain to rest from the chaotic life it dealt with outside of the classroom. Growing up I always enjoyed the extra-curricular activities as opposed to the general requirements, for example English and History, Economics and Government. Because I struggled with being able to focus while in school, I feel today as an adult I suffer from not knowing about some of the key elements to life. And even though today I realize not knowing these things hinders me at times, I still tend to not have a desire to pursue them to better understand. And the reason for this, are the distractions in my life today. I’ve recognized a pattern in my childhood and in my adulthood and rather than taking responsibility, and taking time out of my busy life to learn and grow as an adult I chose to make excuses. I chose to delay educating myself in these areas that are just as important as the......

Contrast Formal and Non Formal Education

...attempt to contrast non-formal education in terms of purpose, timing, content delivery system and control with formal education relate your discussion to the Zambia system at primary and secondary level. Thereafter the conclusion will be drawn but it is of vital importance to identify the key concepts in the questions. According to UNESCO (1991) education is ‘an organized and sustained communication process designed to bring about learning. Mernier (2007) quotes that non-formal learning, happens in any organized outside the formal system (e.g. Youth organization) how to organize an event? Coombs(1973) states that Formal education is the hierarchically structured, chronologically graded educational system running from primary school through the university in addition to general academic studies, a variety of specialized programs and institution for full time and professional training. Non-formal and formal education have differences because when you talk in terms of purpose formal education is long term and general in the sense that it takes a long period of time to finish because you have to start from grade one to twelve and further to the higher institution of learning and it is general because you have to learn a lot of things at once for insistence you want to become a lawyer instead of learning subjects that will support you in doing law like history, you will do sciences which you will not use at the completion of secondary level while in non-formal education ......

Formal and Informal Language

...Formal and Informal English The difference between formal and informal English is not a difference between correct and incorrect, but a difference of what is known as register. A register is a variety of language related to a particular subject matter or area of activity, a set of words and expressions as well as syntactical features that may be said to characterise that specific area of language. There are many registers: technical, academic, mathematical, scientific, etc. Very broadly speaking, we can also speak of a “formal” and “informal” register in English. In writing academic reports and the like, it would be normal to draw most of the vocabulary and expressions from the formal register, and few, if any, from the informal. This entails avoiding colloquial (everyday) or slang expressions in your writing assignments. The question of register is far more complicated than indicated here; for example, there are many degrees of formality and informality. However, below are listed a few examples which may be of practical assistance.[1] Diffenetions of formal & informal: Formal language, even when spoken, is often associated with the conventions expected of written standard English. Formal English follow rules of grammar very strictly. Sentences tend to be longer and more complex. The vocabulary tends to be elevated, using big words and avoiding colloquial or slang vocabulary. It avoids split infinitives and prepositions at the end of......

Effects of Technology on Formal Writing

...sent; while texting is useful, it has over the years become the way of communication for many, especially throughout high school and college years. The problem with having that technology at hand is that, proper formal writing suffers dramatically from having hand held cell phones at people's expense. So what is formal writing? “Formal writing refers to the kind of academic, graded writing that you would do in a college course” (McCarthy). Things like spelling, grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure are included. Taking a look at sending a text message, 160 characters was generally the amount of space given for one text message; which has been expanded over the years and now more words are seen to be allowed. For the purpose of this essay generally speaking, that is approximately 29 words. In comparison with formal writing that would amount to a good sentence or two. Text “slang words” has been invented to lessen the number of characters used in the text message, while still being readable. For example: ‘lol’, meaning laugh out loud; ‘brb’, meaning be right back; ‘ttyl’, meaning talk to you later; ‘u’, instead of you.. There’s many more used, and since texting is commonly used this generation when wanting to communicate, it's seen to creep into students more formal writing and even more so the last couple of years. While dealing with the 160 character limit, one must not forget about the numerous variety of emojis. Cell phones have these to pick from to enhance the......

Formal Analysis

...Magno, Pacifico Andreo S. TFA 150, Ma’am Lisa 2008-82788 FORMAL ANALYSIS The artwork was made by combining various types of lines mainly: expressive, implied, hatching and crosshatching. This was done probably with pencil on paper with a conveyed roughness on the strokes with a rather pleasing softness to it. Expressive lines were used to create the outline of the artwork and to illustrate the overall shape. Implied lines were made to create the twirls on the piece mainly found on the head of the subject. Hatching and crosshatching was then used to create a sense of depth, focus and contrast on the subject. The lines that were illustrated are very biomorphic and seemingly art nouveau in nature, a very popular art style during 1890–1910. The piece itself is flowing and sinuous. This is somehow a representation of hidden desire, a suppressed craving that probably wants to come out. The artwork is colorless and is completely dependent on shades of black and white, the face is somewhat dulled yet expressing a smile on the lips which looks like its daydreaming and yet, the whole image is somehow juxtaposed because of its lack of color and relaxed facial expression sided along powerful and curved lines full of energy. The lines itself seems erratic at first glance – but rather, it follows a direction. The expression of the whole piece resembles a description of William Hogarth’s book entitled: The Analysis of Beauty. Within that book he coined a theory......
