English and ICT
We have a very active group here. Actually, today, I have realized that we are gradually creating or at least making a new field popular in our country- English and ICT. Many of the participants in this group and skype adda come from freelancing background. Their goal is to become skilled in English language so that they can earn more from their freelancing projects.
The basic idea here is very simple- become skilled in English language and then use it for your job, business or online freelancing. This is my goal and my dream. Anyone who will spend 8 hours of time a day here for one month should be able to speak in English for one hour and write 1000 words.
I know that they will be able to achieve much more but that is the bare minimum. What about ICT? We are using computer/laptop/smartphone, internet, Facebook, skype, website. Thus, right now, my goal or target is just increasing English language skill of ordinary persons so that they can use it to shine in their professional life. What about the other way around?
There are many people who have some good skills of English language? I myself come from this background. Is it possible to bring them in freelancing so that they can earn dollar for themselves as well for our national economy? Right now, I think that it is not possible. If someone is skilled in English then earning money is not a big deal in Bangladesh. At least, you can earn money easily by teaching students at your home.
I am going to write about it a lot in the coming days. What do you think?
