What aspect of English is the most important to master?
Well, it depends on your goals for English. Personally, I believe that the ability to communicate orally in a language is the most important. However, listening comprehension, grammar, reading, and vocabulary are all very important. My classes include a mix of activities that target all of these different skills pertaining to the mastery of English.
