ABSTRACT
Learning a language is always a difficult thing and more so when it comes to learning a second language (L2) for it reflects the complexity of learning a language which is the other tongue rather than the mother tongue of a person. The present paper proposes to focus on the prospects and benefits of the skill-based learning of the L2. All learners, as such pick up a language by two means: a) acquisition of one's own language/mother tongue, and b) learning another language. Acquisition is a subconscious and intuitive process, similar to that used by a child to pick up the first language (L1); and the second is conscious learning, in which a learner is aware of his/her own learning process.
