1.Why is it important to apply ‘PACC’ when communicating in different social situation
So that you will now who you are talking to and know how polite you should be
You will also know what tone to use to speak to a person to show what your felling is 
2.If a majority of your classmates hold a certain view about a controversial topic, while you hold an opposing view, how would you convey your thoughts properly?
I will politely tell them what i think and explain to them why i think so and i must use the right  tone and convey what i think their idea is wrong on

3.What are the possible repercussions if the tone and register were used wrongly
The person might mistaken my intent and might create some misunderstanding
They might also think i am impolite 


  1. 1.It is important to apply PACC because the register( formal or informal) will depend on the audience.Tone depends on purpose and context.So we will not be able to communicate effectively.
    2.If I oppose a certain view then i must let the class know in a polite manner.The register needs to be formal and tone must be respectful and not offending or demeaning For content phrases like I beg to differ,in my humble opinion, etc may be used
    3.If tone and register are used wrongly then the end result of the discussion will be disastrous .We need to keep in mind although we hold a different opinion, we need to be polite yet firm.We cannot hurt or demean others, in tis case our friends

  2. this in turn wil damage relationships
