  Foreign Language Learning Essential Components
   
  Grammar
 
There is no denying the fact that learning grammar is the most challenging part of learning a foreign language. However, as much as it is challenging, it is essential. It stands to reason that there is a multitude of academic approaches and different ways of learning grammar. In any case the staples of learning grammar are self-motivation and practice. New knowledge does not come easily, but there is no need to get discouraged. If taken step by step, learning grammar will be not only rewarding but also fun . More
 
 
 
Learning to read is the first step towards learning to write. Reading implies understanding the lettering system of a language, to begin with, but also its sound patterns, sentence construction, structure of text, and grammatical rules. On the other hand, as long as one does not read written discourses in a foreign language, one will not become familiar with written aspects of the language – that is, grammatical structures and the like.

  Listening
 
Developing one’s listening skills is highly essential for effective foreign language learning. Indeed, one may spend one’s entire life being exposed to a foreign language and culture, but if one does not pay much attention to the same, one may never pick up relevant aspects of the language and / or culture.

  Writing  
 
In order to learn to write in a particular language, one has to learn to spell words first. Spelling is nothing but the relationship between sounds specific to a language and the way they are written down according to the rules of orthography (from the Greek words orthos 'correct' and -graphia 'writing'). Since the written language usually tends to be more conservative and admits less variation than the spoken language, the spoken form of a word may evolve in time leaving its orthography obsolete, resulting in a mismatch between how it is written and how it is read. English provides lots of examples, with words such as women, laugh, gaol, and most notably proper names such as Edinburgh, Arkansas, Greenwich, Plymouth, and so on. More
