With regard to learning a language, the four basic skills are- listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Concentration - focusing your attention on a subject and trying to understand it Perception - using your senses to learn about how the world works; also using your past experiences to help you learn about new situations Memory - how well you store information so that you can use it again later Logical Thinking - taking important ideas, facts, and conclusions and putting them in order to state a solution to the problem; going step-by-step and linking different facts together
Speaking and Listening are the two essential language skills. Without a speaker and an understander, there can be no language at all. Reading and Writing allow us to preserve and archive language. If you are able to speak and listen, you can communicate - but you have no way to preserve such communication. Speaking and listening is how we understand each other. Reading and Writing is how we build on that understanding.
