School success often appears to depend on how well students have mastered the language register prevailing at school. This paper presents an inventory of language skills needed most in secondary education. Lists are presented for five communicative competences: linguistic (lexicon, formulating), textual (reading, writing), interactional (reception, production), rhetorical (content, presentation), and informational (organization, search). Each list is based on interviews with language experts and surveys with school teachers.
