A Word to My Students of English

student photoDear Students of English,

First of all, thanks for taking the time to study English: it is not an easy task. In fact, at times, it can prove frustrating. Nevertheless, for some people, like myself, the study of English is a labor of love.

But for you, it might be a tedious task. After all, there is nothing straightforward about the English language. It is full of intricacies and there are exceptions to almost every rule. Nevertheless, a fair understanding of the English Language, and its complex machinery, is essential to your success in almost any field?

Why is this so? This is so because the one thing that separates us from animals is our ability to community through complex language patterns. And right at the top of the every subject area are the masters of English who edit the books of all other subject sand make sure every clause and punctuation fit into place.

What would life be like without all these English rules and regulations? Imagine a city with no traffic lights: total chaos.

In closing, I’d like to say that, for many of you, English is just a small part of your life. It is not your entire life.
