Well, speaking of the course I’d like to do, I would say that it’s an English course. Today, English is considered to be the most important language in the world.
That’s why it became one of the compulsory subjects and we now have to study English from elementary onwards.
I’d like to get admitted to the Foreign Trade University which offers a professional course in Business English.
They have a good reputation for teaching this course effectively to a high standard. As I have other classes in the morning, I would like to enroll in the afternoon course.
Also, the course fee is both cheap and convenient for me to pay using my bank account.
There are so many reasons why I’d like to enroll in an English course.
First of all, English is an international language, hence, having a knowledge of English can help people around the world to communicate better.
Second, it also gives us countless opportunities to become more acquainted with other cultures. We depend on English to keep up to date with the latest news from all over the world, since almost all the books and magazines are written in this language.
Finally, learning English can really help us in our careers and enhance our CVs, as these days, many firms need good office employees to conduct international business.
