Role of language in diplomacy.The use of language is very important in diplomatic dealings. It will have a very important role to play in diplomacy. You should be good at the language you choose so that precise words can be used. The person with whom you are dealing should also be conversant in that language. Then only there will not be any communication gap.
Try to use soft words so that the other person will not get upset. Using soft words will never mean that you are weak. Be assertive while talking and your body language should convey to others that you are assertive. Hearing the voice of others is also very important. If their ideas are good never reject them. When you talk to an individual address him by his name.
Avoid confrontation. The language and the words you use should be in such a way that the other person will never get upset but start thinking in the line of your thinking.
Once you practice the above points you can be a good diplomat.
