    Conclusion All four skills support each other since, they are interconnected therefore, cannot be taught independently Listening and reading both rely on input from an outside source and require knowledge of the language, background knowledge, and comprehension skills. The productive skills of writing and speaking are more complex as they necessitate taking knowledge of a language a step further to actually produce new language.

    Food for thought All four skills facilitate language learning. Language learning is like learning swimming. You cannot teach swimming to someone by sitting at the bank of river and giving lecture. For this purpose you will have jump in the river. In the same way, language cannot be learned by just cramming the rules of grammar or lecture. It can be learn through conversation and discussion.
