LSRW Skills

The four skills of language learning, or LSRW skills, are a group of four aptitudes that enable a person to understand and produce spoken language for proper and effective interpersonal communication. These abilities include speaking, reading, writing, and listening. The four language skills are typically learned in the following order while learning a first language: listening first, speaking next, potentially followed by reading and writing. Lets understand these LSRW skills in detail.


The most important learning ability is listening. It is what is referred to as a latent skill or a responsive ability since it expects us to use our ears and minds to comprehend what is being said to us or addressed to us. It is the first of two typical learning skills.


Oral learning takes place through speaking as the communication medium. Our lungs, vocal tract, vocal lines, tongue, teeth, and lips are just a couple of the body parts that we use to create sounds when we communicate.


One of the first things you learn about reading is that there are many different reading strategies. Students should be aware of which strategy is best for the reading effort demanded by the particular topic or by their educator or teacher.


The fourth language proficiency we can learn is writing. Similar to speaking, it requires us to use both our hands and our minds to convey the written message, idea, thinking, or information that we would have said otherwise. As such, it is profitable or dynamic expertise.
