English the language of knowledge

English the language of knowledge

There are several factors that make the English language essential to communication in our current time. First of all, it is the most common foreign language.

English is also essential to the field of education. In many countries, children are taught and encouraged to learn English as a second language.

English is the dominant business language and it has become almost a necessity for people to speak English if they are to enter a global workforce.

Former prime minister of Malaysia, Dr Mahathir Mohamad said: “In the past, it was Greek, then it was Arabic, then it was Latin and from Latin, European languages became the language of knowledge, the most common being English”.

“If we want to wait until that knowledge is translated into our own languages, there’s a possibility that not everything will be translated. There is also a possibility of things getting lost in translation.”

Although many people think that it is very difficult and confusing, English is actually the easiest language of the world to learn because there are so many resources available.

As soon as you decide you want to learn, there are thousands of resources on the Internet and in bookstores.

With good understanding and communication in English, you can travel around the globe.

Although learning English can be challenging and time consuming, we can see that it is also very valuable to learn and can create many opportunities!

English: Correct Spelling

Correct Spelling

Learning how to spell is considered a fundamental skill, and it takes time to memorize spelling rules and exceptions.

Some helpful tips:

  • visualize what the word looks like, and then try to spell it
  • notecards in a box can make creating this reference easy and fun
  • create your own lists of words they find difficult to spell
  • However, even the most experienced editors, who are checking spelling and grammar very thoroughly, are apt to overlook certain mistakes from time to time.
    To get around the problem of human error, you should put an online spell checker and grammar tool to work for you:-)

    The American State Normal School

    The American State Normal School is the first comprehensive history of the state normal schools in the United States. Although nearly two-hundred state colleges and regional universities throughout the U.S. began as ‘normal’ schools, the institutions themselves have buried their history, and scholars have largely overlooked them. As these institutions later became state colleges and/or regional universities, they distanced themselves from the low status of elementary-literally erasing physical evidence of their normal-school past. In doing so, they buried the rich history of generations of students for whom attending normal school was an enriching, and sometimes life-changing experience. Focusing on these students, the first wave of ‘non-traditional’ students in higher education, The American State Normal School is a much-needed re-examination of the state normal school.This book was subject of an annual History of Education Society panel for best new books in the field.
