Why ENG1?

English is an International language used in all the aspects of communication whether spoken or written. In this era of computer science, English is the only language that is used by many universities and colleges all over the world. Moreover, English can be the basic requirement for all kind of jobs whether government or private and it is the knowledge hub for education; it is widely accepted that English language is very important when it comes to career and education.

Nowadays, there are only few universities and colleges in the world where English is not the only mean for scientific research. In universities and colleges, English is the only language used for scientific research and study. Another reason that emphasizes the importance of English language is the fact that it is very difficult for someone to go for further study outside his/her country without the knowledge of English. Furthermore, one cannot imagine global education without English; economy, politics and geography of other countries require the use and knowledge of English. Needless to mention also that the vast majority of research papers and scientific research are made in English language and that learning computer science can be possible only with the help of English language. Equally important is the use of internet in ; Good command of English language provides a big advantage when it comes to use Google, Facebook and twitter. The same goes for search engines and social media sites, which can prove to be the best place to gain knowledge and updates about career and education; to use them someone must have some basic knowledge of English language since 50 % of internet content is written in English language.
