Language has never been so challenging requirement is both receptive and expressive and this continues to increase in complexity as students get older. In fact, language learners are not only expected to assimilate more language they are also expected to produce more. As a tool for communication, language is intermediary between thought and action, between ideation and endeavor.  

Communication strategies, on the other hand, are methods of achieving communication whether orally or written forms. Stated simply, before a language learner can use English in various situations competently, he/she needs to acquire as much linguistic competence as he/she can. Our task then is assisting the learner to acquire this competence gradually.
