Learning to communicate well is an important skill for anyone to develop whether a student or a professional.

For example, teachers learn what students understand from what they say. This means that students who want to get good grades in college will have to write well enough to show what they know. Another situation may be a person writing a letter to a favorite rock star and asking for a autographed CD. Furthermore, people use speaking to help take care of problems in their personal and professional lives.
