Zenta Anspoka
Riga Teacher Training and Educational Management Academy, Latvia

Abstract

Whilst living in today’s contemporary and diverse environment of visual information, people draw too little attention to verbal information, textual perception, listening, reading and writing. However, language is not only a means of communication. Language is also a means of acknowledging human thinking, self-affirmation and ethnicity. Since the main goal of education is to raise a creative personality, the mutual relationship between language and speech becomes the most important means to this end.
