So many words each containing ikla meaning combined in Facility.
    Then, Right, for example, also means power, justice, and a direction.
    Whereas in my language, each word contain one meaning, even if there are more than one, whose are relevant.

    But I like to learn English, not like the language, because although my English is really poor, yes I know how bad my English it is while I speak English to English, they always understand what I want to express. When I ask them how do they feel my English, they always say "your English is good, even better than students in Englsih country". Wow my God, that makes me feeling better I like the language when I use it anyone can understand. Making others understand me, that is a language fundamentally working for I think.
    The English as a language to me is an amazing tool, looks like everyone can use it in own way. This is the most open language compare with others I guess.

    Some one says English is a necessary tool. I agree with him saying this, but since so many translators in this world, I think if I want to know what are some English saying or writing, I can use translator, so I don't want to make learning English so utilitariant, I come here learn English just for fun, for practising. Sadly my family has no money to provide me go to college, my parents are not speaking English, so my circumstances are not good for learning English thnks to internet, I found this forum that is a good platform for my purpose. Maybe you will come to help me? I wish.

    I like to learn English even though I don't like the language. When I speak English to English-speaking foreigners they always understand me. When I ask them what they think about my English they always say, "Your English is good--even better than students in England." Wow! My God, that makes me feel better. I like it that when I use the language people can understand me. When I can make others understand me when using a language then I know I am successful.

    Someone said English is a necessary tool. I agree with that, but since there are so many translators in the world I think that if I want to know some English saying or writing that I can use a translator. So I don't make learning English a very high priority.

    Thanks to the Internet, I found this forum that is a good platform for my purpose. Maybe you will help me. I hope so.

    Yes, I'm Filipino! So how long have you been in Saudi Arabia?

    I think you don't need to be nervous while talking to your boss in English. Anyway, you're not talking to him because you would like to show off your English skill but to communicate , perhaps, about your work... So you don't need to be afraid to show your skills. English here is just a medium of communication that you may voice what you're doing at work....

    I think you just need practice and you will have a lot of that since you're in a place where you need to use English all the time. You're not fluent in Arabic too, are you?
    Learn some expressions, start from the most common to the advanced expressions.... Learn a new expression everyday, What you can't say in English today, think of it and try to learn it for you to be able to speak the next time....

    All the best kababayan!!!
