HIGH PROFILED LANGUAGE


We are experiencing a period of unprecedented advancement in communications technology. From facsimile machines to cell phones, from voice mail to the internet, our communications tools especially have become more advanced and sophisticated. Today, we are able to organize, transmit, and utilize information at speeds unimaginable only a few years ago, and we should anticipate future developments that are equally unimaginable today. Nevertheless, the "information super highway", to borrow this phrase from a well-known author, notwithstanding, communications technology has not supplanted communications know-how. We still require information and ideas to be expressed in clear, comprehensible prose, and the person who can compose such prose is still a vital part of any business organization. Therefore, solid control of the English language continues to be a highly marketable skill in today's workplace.

Korek ka dyan, the development in communications is so fast, just like the progress here in KSA. In a very short period of time, too many changes took place.

Infrastructures after infrastructures ... yes, and it's all around us. The revolving tower at the corniche is halfway through. Am sure it's gonna be a beautiful landmark.

You have edge if you have a good command of the English language.

They can't do away with English as a medium of communication in business. You remember, sa SCECO, they tried to Arabicize everything, pero di pwede.
