Maslow, a humanist psychologist, and one of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century, has explained ‘human nature’ in one simple model. He suggested that there are universal, instinct-like needs, which every human being strives to satisfy. Almost all human activity can be seen in terms of these needs. Maslow gives the needs a hierarchical order. Those needs at the bottom of the diagram overleaf are of greatest importance. A need towards the top would only be of importance to someone if the needs lower down were already largely satisﬁed.

Very few native speakers will ever start writing at the top of the first page and continue straight through until they finish at bottom of the last one.

Prewriting helps students gather ideas and give them a bank of possibilities for their writing.

These learners define fluency as the ability to converse with others, much more than the ability to read, write, or comprehend oral language.
