Summary/Abstract: This study examines whether the nature of educational communication influences student learning in humanistic subjects or not. It is based on a questionnaire which inquires as to what the features of educational communication and indicators of perceived learning are. The study surveys the results of an analysis of data coming from 256 lower secondary school students who study in the South Moravian Region. The results show that features of educational communication significantly influence perceived learning and that the most important variable is students’ participation in communication.
