    Re: skill

    "Social" and "skills" normally go together. For example, he is lacking in social skills.

    "I have social skills."

    "Social skills are good skills to have."

    "It's a good skill to have" is OK if you are talking about one particular skill. Otherwise, "they are good skills to have" if you are referring to "social skills."
