This paper attempts a small-scale understanding of Nonverbal Communication (NVC). It is based on the theoretical study of the NVC-eye contact and proxemics used effectively in the classroom might aid to enhance English communication skills among young learners. During the teaching-learning process, the possible ways of using some factors of NVC are discussed that might help to improve both teacher’s and learner’s communication skills.
