Summary

One of the best abilities of a communicator is the language, obviously. However, nowadays the educational programmes come prioritize the communication via image, and that causes an important gap to a lot of professionals. 

It is normally thought that only with the ability of writing, we know how to correctly communicate with writing, but the truth is that writing and narrative have their own techniques, ways and strategies and a communicator can get rid of them.

Nowadays, all work, order or communications to clients still go with and are strengthened with words, either written in explicative texts, memories, texts for webs, e-mails, written presentations…

On the other hand, still in the social media era, blogs and even twitter, communication strategies are still going through an effective use of language, narrative and the generation of useful and interesting contents.
