Principal’s Message

Dear students,

 

In an increasingly interconnected and globalized World English is the official language in a large number of countries and is used as a common language by more than two billion people all over the World. English is also an international language and it is primarily used in academic world, international affairs and diplomacy, global trade and commerce, tourism, and it is the common language worldwide.

 

Most of the world’s top films, books and music and most of the content on the internet are published and produced in English. Thus, knowing English will allow you to access to an incredible amount of information which may not be otherwise available, and help you have a greater cultural understanding.

 

In this new digital age English is a must, too. Most top world web pages, latest versions of internet applications, hardware installation guides, software manuals, new freeware, shareware are all primarily in English.

 

For a good career, English opens numerous job and employment opportunities promising higher positions and salary because our country is under the process of expanding its influence especially in economy and global policy. Multi-national companies and organizations have been investing in Turkey more and more.  So, it has become almost a necessity for people to speak English if they are to enter a global workforce.

 

Beside English and other western languages like Italian, Spanis etc., we need to know the languages of our neighboring countries, too. For this purpose we have opened Turkish-Russian Translation Program and we are planning to open others, Arabic, Persian, Greek, and Bulgarian.
