The fourth skill

Classroom teaching is not student friendly in many parts of the country. The image of a language teacher (especially English language teacher) is of an angry bull walking on an open street.
Alison Rostetter's insight:

This article is more about the importance of learning to write than about angry bulls.  Ever more relevant, the skill of writing is nevertheless often ignored. These days a great deal of our exchanges with the world are in words, not speech, and there is a huge necessity to be able to write a language as well as to be able to speak it.
