Language Skills Worksheets

What are the core English language skills?

The goal of language, any of them, is to be able to share knowledge. This is how the human race continues to evolve in all facets. If we did not transfer the knowledge of the current working generation to younger generations, this evolution would be stopped in its tracks. There are four common components of knowledge transfer. First, we have to be able to take in information. We can do this through the spoken language by listening or by reading written work. We then also have to be able to transfer this knowledge to others. We can do that by speaking or writing down our thoughts. As a result, the four common core functions of the English language are listening, writing, reading, and speaking. This section of our website will explore various aspects of these four components and help elevate your skills.
