Vocabulary: reading and writing.
Reading is a fundamental activity. For centuries, it has given access to knowledge, and it still does. From our young years, reading has given us privileged moments of pleasure and discovery of the world through the stories and books we were read to. At best, these early readings have immersed our minds, and influenced them, giving them the pleasure of touching and "reading" books. They may have sparked off interest - and love - for books. Thus, reading may become a necessity and a pleasure occupying leisure time. Reading is a key to many entertaining fields and we should never neglect it.
Writing is also a privileged form of expression and communication...
