According to this, the language competences are grammar, discourse, socio-linguistic and strategic. Harris (1997) explaines that speaking is a complex skill which consists of using some different competences like pronounciation, grammar, fluency, vocabulary etc. together while speaking in its course in different developmental speaking stages.
