4技能(IELTS Task2向け)

設問: 言語の専門家は、4技能(聞く、読む、書く、話す)を維持する事を推奨しています。一方で、特別支援の必要な方は、スキルを一つだけ潜在的能力として伸ばすことも出来ます。あなたはこれでどれだけ賛成/反対しますか?少なくとも250語で書いてください。


一方で、4技能は働く人にとって、社会と上手くやっていくのに必要なスキルと言えます。例えば、事務職で働く方であればメールや電話、書類でのコミュニケーションが必要とされています。また、お店のスタッフであれば、お客様と話さなければいけません。それゆえに、4技能は他人と社会で対処するための重要なスキルと言えるでしょう。 加えて、彼らは社会スキルの一つとして良い利点を習得できます。例えば、ほとんどの企業はお客様や取引先の企業と契約を結ぶべきとされています。それゆえに、事務所のスタッフは書類が読め、営業の方もお客様との交渉が必要になります。この結果、4技能は働く人にとって重要なスキルと言えるのです。
