Communication is a complex, holistic, and multifaceted process that is unique to humans alone. It is based on establishing mental contact between real and directly interacting individuals to express their inner world (ideas, feelings, thoughts, needs, intentions, values, etc.), coordinate their actions, express their relations, demonstrate their individual uniqueness and constantly improve themselves. The review of topic-related specialized literature shows that communication is central to the mutual activity of people, establishment of certain relations between them and for the existence of large human communities. It is a necessary condition for the normal development of every human individual as a member of society. Through communication, the individual interacts with the social environment, absorbs social experience and is embedded in society. Without it, we would not be able to adopt moral, cognitive, practical and aesthetic experience from previous generations. In communication, human values are built and developed and their essential personal characteristics are revealed.
