    Default Pleased of Your Cooperation

    I am going to write about the importance of English language and computer learning for getting a job. "The Importance of English Language and Computer skills In Job Vacancies" I could not come up with important ideas, so I need your help. I am going to write three –boy-paragraphs essay .Therefore; I need three main ideas that I can write about each one of them a well-organized paragraph. Could you suggest any idea?

    Try to get hold of some statistics for English on the internet, where it is disproportionally popular. This shows how IT and English are closely associated.

    Statistics is only details .It is not a gerenal idea that I can write about .I want general ideas about that topic in order to look for details and write .Why do you think Computer learning and English language are important for applying to a certain job?

    By the way, can you explain what does IT mean,please?

    IT = Information Technology

    The reason I suggested looking at the statistics is because it shows the domination of English as the primary language for international communication (3/4 of mail is in English), which shows why it is essential in the information age or with the globalisation of trade to have an understanding of the language. The stats give a glimpse of this importance.

    No, I am not angry with you. (Nor am I miffed or annoyed.) I simply had nothing to add to what Tdol said. However, I do have a question or two.

    Is your essay about the importance of learning English if you are going to get a job working with computers?

    What does "three –boy-paragraphs" mean?

    I haven't had anything to contribute here (in this thread) before now.

    :)

    It is very simply, Why do you think that learning English and being a computer literate qualify someone to get a job better than somebody who does not know English language and how to use a computer?

    :)
    Three –boy –paragraph means that I will write an essay consisting of three paragraphs other than the introduction and the conclusion paragraphs.

    Interesting. I never thought knowing English and knowing how to use computers were related.

    Three body paragraphs?

    Many university courses require both IT and English to study, so a lack of knowledge of these areas will exclude those without the knowledge from even studying to get the qualifications.
