Assignment 1/Task 1/ P1
There are many ways to communicate, therefor I made a clean table to discuss the differences ways to communicate.

Disadvantages:

* Relying only on oral communication may not be sufficient as business communication is formal and very organized * Oral communications are not always easy to understand, which can cause problems * Noise can distract oral communication, which also can cause problems.
