 A language usually has 4 basic and different features in its usage. They are as follow;

1) Listening or understanding; 2) Speaking or expressing; 3) Reading and 4) Writing.  

The first two features are primarily concerned with the spoken form where as the other two are concerned with the written form. Every language has the first two basic characteristics and a language with the script has all the four characteristics.
