According to Onwuka (1998) communication is the transmission of information from a source to a receiver through a channel. In a simple conversation between two people, for instance, the source of communication is the person who speaks and the receiver is his audience. What is said or transmitted is the message and the medium of transmitting the message, that is, the spoken voices is the channel. To communicate basically means to share ideas, information, opinion, feelings or experiences between people. Communication is sharing or exchange between people, that is, the ability to establish a common ground with another person or group of persons. This common ground must be established between the people involved in any communication process, before communication can be effective. As a matter of fact, the word communication is derived from communis which is a latin word, meaning common. Barker (2019) describes communication as that body of meaning through symbols (verbal, musical, pictoral, plastic, gestural) which makes up the message itself. Language is social and serves to communicate needs. It is also symbolic and has an organizing function. Thus, communication model consists only four communication elements; the source, channel, message and the receiver.
