Hence, English is unarguably one of the most important subjects that a student must excel in to master the entire curriculum and to promote excellence in his or her career. English subject deals with reading, writing, and communicating and therefore is helpful for a student to build a strong base to understand and learn other subjects as well. 


Most people have the most common misconception regarding our academics; whether as students or parents, that once a student is promoted to the next grade, it automatically means and guarantees that the student has fully mastered all the topics covered in the previous grades. This is just not always the case. Even if a child has been promoted to the next grade with good overall proficiency, they might have skill gaps that need to be fixed from their previous grades. To master the English subject, it is not enough for the students to just excel in their present grade. They must have 100% proficiency in all the topics of English subject that they have covered and learned in their previous grades. There is always a scope for improvement in the previous grades. The skill gaps that students might have in their previous grades are also why they cannot excel in their present grades. If not closed at the right time, the previous grades' skill gaps can become a huge obstacle in a student's learning journey.
