    How can reading develop or enhance each skill separately from another ?

    Skills are intertwined- why would we want to develop them separately?

    It enriches vocabulary. Exposure to sentence patterns, textual structure, etc, helps people with writing.

    Any eposure to language will result in some learning. Reading a l;ot exposes students to things like sentence poatterns. If you read thjousands of paragraphs, you will picj\k up a sense of how we organise them, which enables students to then produce them. If a student reads a newspaper, say, then they will come across lots of contemporary words and phrases and also see how arguments and opinions are strictured. Studnets who read a lot can then often reproduce thios in their writing, so they produce more natural, better oragnised arguments in things like exam questions.
