In this article the concept of teaching is approached as an art of verbal and non-verbal communication, linked to a particular skillset that can assist them in their success as teachers. Specifically, we study the methods teachers can use to become better communicators, and even performers, so that their multiple actions in the classroom can attract the interest of their students. We discuss here a variety of skills that a teacher needs to be efficient, while expanding on verbal and non-verbal ones, such as the use of hand and facial gestures, the appropriate speed and volume of voice, etc. This article examines the skills teachers need to acquire in order to give attractive and effective lessons to their students, so that the latter can better understand what is being taught. Teaching here is seen as a type of interactive performing act, during which the teachers have to do everything in their power to transfer their knowledge to their students-listeners-spectators (Tauber and Mesner, 2010: 14). Thus, this article is divided into 3 (three) major sections: a. Teaching as a profession, and the role of university and other training facilities; b) Interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, and c. The communication skills of a teacher in a classroom in terms of verbal and non-verbal communication.
