What I understand is, language teaching has two aims:

  1. Skills [Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening] development
  2. Linguistic competence development

So, each language lesson should cover at least one skill component and at least one linguistic component.

Am I correct?

Is there a 3rd component called literacy?

E.g. Literacy includes:

  1. phonological awareness
  2. decoding
  3. fluency
  4. comprehension
  5. vocabulary.

  • What should be part of every language lesson depends on the language teaching method you espouse. So the answer is: it depends. (Also: literacy covers both reading and writing.) – Tsundoku Jul 20 '20 at 14:06

  • literacy covers both reading and writing. --- literacy not only includes reading and writing. Does it? – user366312 Jul 20 '20 at 15:19
  • Regarding language teaching methods: there is a long list of language-teaching approaches that will influence what you include in individual lessons and how. Regarding literacy: if you think it includes more than reading and writing, please edit your question to include that information. – Tsundoku Jul 20 '20 at 16:04
