Two friends, Raghib and Adeeb, for HSC Exam

Unit 3 : Lesson 3  
Two friends, Raghib and Adeeb, wanted to learn how to ride a bicycle. Adeeb bought a book called, ‘’How to Ride A Bicycle’’ and started reading it. On the other hand, Raghib took out his bicycle on the street and trying to ride it. He fell off several times and Adeeb laughed at him.
However, by the time Adeeb finished the first chapter of his book. Raghib was riding his bicycle fairly well. Adeeb knew how the bicycle worked but did not know how to use it from first-hand experience.
Learning a language is like riding a bicycle. The most important thing about any language is communication. You learn to communicate effectively by using a language, by doing things with it and by experiencing it. You can learn English in the same way that Rghib learnt to ride a bicycle.
