  1. Why is it important to apply 'PACC' when communicating in different social situation?

Ans: It allows us to communicate easier whether its planned or unplanned. With ‘PACC’, we will know who are our audience, whats our purpose about this conversation. Without PACC, our conversation will be messy.

  1. 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 politely?

Ans: I will raise up my hand and share my thoughts with them and give comments to what they think. I will also accept their comments and try to improve in my thoughts.

  1. What are the possible repercussions if the tone and register were used wrongly?

Ans: If the tone and register is used wrongly, people communicating may end up in arguments or something funny may happen. Example when I want to scold someone and i use a welcoming tone it will end up with a very funny joke.

  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 should be polite,respectful and not offending or demeaning.For content,phrases like I beg to differ,in my humble opinion, ect. ,may be used.
    3.If tone and register are use wrongly,then the end result if the discussion will be disastrous. We need to keep in my that even though we hold a different opinion we need to be polite and yet firm.We cannot hurt or demean others,in this case our friends.This in turn will damage relationships.
