Simple communication is when you accommodate others by speaking in an easy to understand way. This often happens if you have been speaking to non-native speakers of English on a regular basis for a long time, for example, as a result of living abroad. Although I don’t mention it in the video, it can also happen when native speakers dumb down their language because they have adapted to it through their jobs. In this video I give examples of when it is a good idea to speak in simple communication and when it is best to stop it.
