What you need to know about linked skills

Using the four skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing for communicative purposes is why most people are learning languages. This is also a good way to recycling vocabulary and grammar that is learned. Using Linked Skills is a way for a teacher or an independent language learner to make the most out of very few materials. This could be as simple as taking a reading text and reading through it, then writing a brief summary of what you read, and then posting a video where you explain what you read. This would be a good activity because it gives practice to the same vocabulary and grammar through different skills. It provides not only repetition, but also skills practice. This video will show you many more examples for language teachers and also independent language learners.
