What do you learn when you learn English?

“English, of course.” “Yes, but what is English or any other language composed of?”
WORDS, which go next to other words (collocation) in expressions or groups within clauses and sentences (grammar). Words have a pronunciation (phonetics). So, we have to learn vocabulary, grammar and phonetics. Is that enough? If we want to have communicative competence in that language, we have to develop skills:
Oral skills: listening and speaking
Written skills: reading and writing
