For this reason, educators at all levels of schooling, including adult basic education, need to focus more attention on improving the oracy skills of native English speakers along with those needing English as an additional language.

Improved oracy as well as literacy skills can enhance the employability of adults and their advancement in work. Oracy can be seen as an outcome, whereby students learn to talk confidently, appropriately and sensitively.
