Learn Four Skills of Communication

Learn Four Skills of Communication

In-order to improve one's communication skills, one needs to be proficient in each of the four language skills. Listening and reading are the receptive skills because learners do not need to produce language, they receive and understand it. These skills are sometimes known as passive skills.

The productive skills are speaking and writing because learners are applying.

FThese four skills of language are a set of four capabilities that allow an individual to comprehend and produce spoken language for proper and effective interpersonal communication. These skills in a need to produce language. They are also known as active skills.

Listening is a receptive language skill which learners usually find the most difficult. This happens because they are constantly under the pressure to understand every word. The listener needs to be attentive and be all ears. In everyday life, the situation, the speaker, and visual clues all help us to decode oral messages. One should always be able to concentrate on understanding the message thoroughly. Listening Skills could be enhanced by focusing on making the students listen to the sounds of that particular language. This would help them to produce the words correctly. Intensive listening will ultimately help a student to understand more on the accents to be used and the exact pronunciation of words.

Language is a medium for communication. We communicate with others, to express ourselves and give words to our thoughts. In primary schools elocution and recitation are main sources to master the sounds, rhythms, and intonation of the English language through simple reproduction. The presentation of the language in games and pair work activities encourages learners to speak the language.

Reading is a learning skill. It helps you improve your vocabulary, spelling, grammar, and writing. Then the brain imitates them, producing similar sentences to express the desired meaning. Skimming or scanning is an effective technique to read quickly. While reading, highlighting the key words is a must. Developing reading skills help the students to understand the content and make conclusions. The students should also make it a point to familiarize themselves with the jargons and new words by making reading a habit be it reading newspapers, articles, books, magazines etc

Writing provides a learner with physical evidence of his achievements and helps a person to measure his improvement. Writing also complements the other language skills. It helps to understand the text more clearly and write compositions. Importance should be given to composition and creative writing. One should also focus on coherence and cohesiveness when it comes to writing a language.

With these four skills addressed equally while learning English, the learners can be assured of having good communication skills, a great necessity in today’s competitive world.
