The Fourth Learning Skill

Writing requires you to process a variety of symbols into a readable form. Whilst a solid understanding of the alphabet in use is needed, alongside this; as a writer, you will need a strong command of punctuation and grammar.  In addition, a good sense of  tone/mood will enable you to fully communicate your message in writing.




Ways of Writing

‘Writing takes many forms. Picture writing incorporates recognisable images and symbols. Thought writing communicates with more abstract symbols, each of which represent words or ideas. Sound writing systems use marks or letters that stand for sounds. Many scripts use a combination of all of these forms – Mixed writing systems.’
