Default Which is more imporant, spoken language or nonverbal communication?

On a whim of crazy and insane ideas, I walked into one of my elementary school classrooms and proceeded to teach half of a class using gestures and other forms of nonverbal communication, not opening my mouth one time. I wanted to show the kids that 'communication' was much more important than knowing the actual language.

What do you think? Pitted against each other, which would win out, SL or NC?
