How important are efficient writing skills?
Writing is an important part of life, whether in the workplace or school, or in personal communication. Lack of writing skills can lead to misinformation, the wrong message, or an ambiguous message. People with good writing skills are perceived as more credible and are promoted more often. We may live in an era of sound bites, emails, and short messages, but good writing still matters!
Subject: English as a Second Language
Do you believe that learning Grammar is important in mastering the English language?
English language learners who lack grammar rules can neither use the English language effectively, nor can they speak English fluently. Communicative competence includes knowing how to use the grammar and vocabulary of the language to achieve communicative goals.
Do you believe that everyone can learn English/Grammar/Writing skills, even those who consider themselves untalented in this area?
I believe that everyone can vastly improve their communication competence and their interpersonal skills by mastering the English language. Accurate use of words in speech and in writing is fundamental to success.
