The receptive skills are listening and reading, because learners do not need to produce language to do these, they receive and understand it. A balanced approach to teaching receptive skills incorporates both listening and reading respectively, \"create an integrated lesson'. Whether for a purpose of pleasure, the ability to hear and read a language is not as simple as being familiar with words, but much more about translating words heard/written and recognized into their 'proper' meanings. This task requires knowledge of cultural understanding in which the language is context. Knowing the difference between 'Authorized Material' and 'Non' is a key feature in these lessons, too much of one or the other should be deterred. When teaching the skills of reception, the teacher must incorporate subjects that interest ALL of the students, which may have to occur one lesson at a time, and requires the teacher to know their audience. With time, the skills of reception will become apparent in the students comprehension abilities; they should be observed in the areas of prediction, scanning for specific information, skimming for general context, ability to find out specific information, as well as, their ability to deduct with reason. Repeated exposure to listening and reading exercise is crucial for the learning of language, and may be the only 'true' way to teach these skills, through practice, trial and error, and maybe even failure. When preparing lessons on receptive skills a teacher must be weary of sentence length, word length and the number of unfamiliar words used. Receptive skills, in my opinion, are the first step in learning a new language, for these skills allow students to work on their own, at their own pace, and with subjects that interest them specifically.
