This unit put the focus on productive skills, essentialy, speaking and writing. While, speaking and writing are substantially different in many ways, they both are used for the same purpose: to communicate. In many ways writing is the most neglected skill in the TEFL courses. Writing, therefore, is often relegated to homework, which in turn is frequently not done so the skill is never developed. It is true that most students prefer to focus on their speaking skills, but it doesn't mean that writing should be ignored. In my modest opinion, writing is one of the most difficult skill which requires a greater degree of accuracy, among other aspects. When speaking, any misunderstanding can be cleared up' on the spot', whereas this is not possible in writing. Speaking, on the other hand, requires a greater degree of fluency as the speaker will rarely have time to think and plan an answer.
