    Question enable communication between two people

    Hi,

    While not all elements are required, at least two terminals are required in order to enable communication between two people.

    Is the "two people" should be "two peoples"?

    Thanks.

    No, "two peoples" means the entire populations of two different groups, tribes or nations.
