Someone recently asked me this question and I instantly said yes. I believe everything can be learned.
I was thinking, if it could not be taught at all, then English / Filipino / language / communication / creative writing / journalism courses would be useless.
Sadly, most of these courses are meant to uncover the writer just hiding beneath a cloak of self-doubt. These are really useless if one did not, in the first place, learn how to write a proper sentence in elementary school.
If one did not bother listening to his or her Grade 3 teacher drone on and on about nouns and pronouns, singular and plural words, and subject-verb agreement, everything’s screwed.
I’m not a grammar expert. Not at all. I make mistakes — lots of them. I have a lot to learn but I sure am thankful Mrs. Brondial (my Grade 3 teacher) kind of gave me a head start. I will be forever grateful.
