The power of reading and listening | Successful English

Scientific research tells that most of our fluency – our ability to use a language – comes from what we read and hear.
Jack Armstrong's insight:

this article claims that reading is the most important skill for second language aquisition. it bases this on the fact that through comprehensible input from reading, students are exposed to more language than if they were to watch or listen to dialogue. Reading involves more input which leads to better SLA. The most efficient way to learn language (according to this article) is to be exposed to as much comprehensible input as possible, both listening and reading being the key areas to concentrate on.
