The Relationship Between English Achievement and Proficiency Tests - 1. Introduction It is clear nowadays that language learning means learning how to use the language and not learning to know about the language. Using the language depends on our competences (knowledge, skills and characteristics) that allow us to engage in communicative activities.

It identifies four modes of communication: production (speaking and writing), reception (listening and reading), interaction (spoken and written), and mediation (translating and interpreting)....   [tags: English language programs]
