Learning is a period which begins with birth and lasts eternally. In this period,primary education is the most important step that basic knowledge and skills are acquired. The foundations established in this period play an important role in the life-long success of a student. In our age which everything change and develop very fastly, we need individuals who can keep pace with that speed, think, question,critisize, produce solutions, look at the future,make up multiple point of views, use the language effectively. Language has two different dimensions; writing and speaking are relaeted to rhetoric ,listening and reading comprehension skill. When compared,writing is a skill that improves later than reading. For its healthy improvement, multiple encouragement is very necessarry.
