a). an integrated approach to the acquisition of talking,  listening, reading and writing skills across the curriculum;

knowledge that allows a speaker, writer and reader to use language appropriate to different social situations;

formal and informal language across all areas of social interaction; and

the ability to read, understand and use information in multiple formats and platforms, including traditional print and on-screen material.
