As we all know that communication is one of the important processes needed for human survival. Communication is a medium of transferring our ideas, needs, wishes, and denying to others. Without communication, human existence is of no value. Communication plays an important role in the classroom process because it is due to communication a teacher comes to know about various needs of children and through its effective teaching-learning process takes place.

Classroom communication is the interactive language and responses between students and teachers.

Education is considered an important aspect of the survival of human beings. And for obtaining knowledge or education communication is an important element. Communication helps to transmit the knowledge from the teacher to the student aside from the sharing of other ideas, thoughts, and opinions.

Barriers to Effective Classroom Communication:

1. Noise: This is one of the most important barriers in the classroom process. Noise can interrupt the entire teaching-learning process in the classroom.

2. Lack of listening: Lack of effective listening is also a barrier in the teaching-learning process. Different students have different perception of the student and interprets it differently which results in conveying inappropriate information by the student.
