Speaking and writing English fluently allows each student to communicate their ideas and express their emotions to others. Reading and listening allow the student to understand the communication of other people. Learning English plays a crucial role in developing culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually.
English is a key skill to have in order to participate as a key member of society. Students who do not speak, write and read fluently can be disenfranchised. Reading enables each student to build their knowledge on a variety of different topics.
