Why is it important to utilize good writing skills in school and in professional settings?
Language is the tool of our verbal and written communication. How can one engage in a respectful dialogue with someone who has no respect for the mode of that dialogue? A few typographical errors are understandable, especially if english is your second language. However, sloppy writing suggests carelessness since there are many tools for checking grammar. The better your grammar is, you will clearly have a real advantage in your future endeavors.

To fully understand a language, you need to not only understand the words that are used, but the emotions behind them.

There are customs and rituals that have to be learned, and mindsets that must be understood. The only way you will learn about the differences between cultures is by exposing yourself to them. If you can study or live abroad that experience will be very beneficial to understanding fully the way people communicate in a particular country.
