Overview of Learning a Language

by Donny Qiu


Learning a language is like making a

why???
to make a good and strong table you have to build a table like the one in the picture, 4 vertical legs plus 2 side supporting legs and 1 middle supporting leg.
explanation:
4 vertical legs are the essential skills in a language, Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing
2 side supporting legs are Vocabulary and Pronunciation
1 middle supporting leg is Grammar
But...
You still need nails to bonds them all together.
Our nails is Practice
Also...
You can't say that you want to strengthen one of the legs only without concerning about the other legs, they must be done together. (imagine building a square table with 3 legs)

Note:
For some languages, Grammar is sometimes omitted thus you can also omit the middle supporting leg without losing the stability of the table, it's there just to strengthen the legs.
