1 – As human beings, we are used to living under laws and patterns that are dictated to us by society. But Following those patterns does not make us good citizens. To be a good citizen first you have to be a good person. That is. You have to embrace a certain number of values, Principles, ethics Etc. When joining all these aspects together You will find out that nothing else is needed. 2 – One important aspect for being a good citizen is to help people all around us, we can see there are always people in need for our help. Our job as good citizens is to help those kinds of people. When talking about the people that need our help, one should not only talk about the poor ones, but also about the pregnant woman who cannot carry a heavy package or the old man who cannot cross the street. Remember that little actions make the difference. 3 – Another important thing we have to remember for being a Good citizen is to have an active participation in our Community. There are a lot of ways we can do that. On Election Day, we have to be in the line ready to give our vote. When there is a gathering in our neighborhood for deciding about the maintenance of the streets, we have to be there to voice out our points of view. 4 – The last recommendation for being a good citizen is the respect toward the people that live around us. We have to remember that as we have rights, they have them too. Respect is one of the most important bases when living in a society. We all have freedom, but it is restricted to a certain point.We cannot consider a killer or a thief good citizens they have violated that restriction. 5 – These are some of the ideas that I think are the most important for being good citizens within a community. Nowadays the relationships between people have been really deteriorated by misunderstandings that are generated day by day .To avoid having to deal with these negative situations, we have to be aware that the solution depends on us.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ENGLISH British or American, the language is basically the same, and its global stature is strengthened by massive English-language training programs, an international business that in textbooks, language courses, tape cassettes, video programs and computerized instruction — is worth hundreds of millions of pounds or dollars to the economies of the US and the UK. The English language is now one of Britain’s most reliable exports. In the ironic words of the novelist Malcolm Bradbury, it is an ideal British product, ‘needing no workers and no work, no assembly lines and no assembly, no materials and very little servicing, it is used for the most intimate and the most public services everywhere. We call it the English language …‘ Dr Robert Burchfield, previous Chief Editor of the Oxford English Dictionary, has remarked that any literate, educated person on the face of the globe is deprived if he does not know English’. The first level of the global influence of English is to be found in those countries, formerly British colonies, in which English as a second language has become accepted as a fact of cultural life that cannot be wished away. In Nigeria, it is an official language; in Zambia, it is recognized as one of the state languages; in Singapore, it is the major language of government, the legal system and education.
