A shared article makes great reading…and writing: Lost in a sea of yellow

I’d like to share a great article with you. Although it is about reading, we know that it also has to do with writing….it is impossible to disassociate the four language skills.

With this great beginning, this article will point out a little-considered point for teachers of EFL and ESP in writing and reading contexts.
