There are 3 main forms of verbal communication including Oral Communication, Written Communication, and Mediated Communication.

There are two types of communication, and they are verbal and non-verbal. The levels of oral communication are sound, language, tone and inflection, public speaking, interpersonal, slogans, and written communication.

Written communication is documentation of the communication. A written communication (except for the most casual) should include the date and the name of the person originating the communication. An oral agreement or contract is as binding in most places as a written contract, but a written communication is not dependent on the memory or the veracity of the parties.Written communications included notes, memos, letters, emails, and text messages.
