Unit 12 discussed the other set of important skills that go hand-in-hand with receptive skills which are productive skills. This includes speaking and writing. This unit discussed the difference between accuracy and fluency when it comes to speaking. Accuracy had more to do with understanding the content and using it correctly. Whereas fluency has more to do with the flow and use of language - the comfort level a student has when speaking that new language. It had less to do with the correctness and more to do with getting the meaning across with words used and experimenting with the new language to get a better feel for it. There are certain activities that a teacher can use that are more tailored towards accuracy-based lessons, such as drilling, and activities that are more tailored towards fluency-based lessons, such as role-play or debate activities. This unit also discussed ways to encourage students when focusing on speaking skills and how to properly teach speaking-based lessons. Then, on the other hand, the unit discussed how to properly teach writing-based lessons. What is important to focus on and what can be difficult for students. For example, pronunciation of an english word does necessarily mean its spelling is easy to understand. Also, two words can sound the same but be spelled differently and mean different things; or, two words can be spelled the same, sound different and mean different things. Teaching writing to students can therefore be a very tricky thing and requires memorization from the students.
