I agree with him. The war is the worst things in the world and I hope he will succeed to bulid his conntry very soon.

Oussama one of many persons who have ambition to achieve their goals. And in my opinion the first step to that you must know how you arrive. The education is very important for any one to achieve his goal.

I totally agree. Because English is used all over the world. Education is very important for our daily lives. If we can speak or write English Fluently, we can access to the world.

English language is most popular language in the world. English is the language of sciene, tourism. English is my chance to have a good job.

I also totally agree with him. To survive in this competitive world, we need a powerful weapon and Oussama has clearly understood that the most powerful thing and the only way to achive his goal is getting a proper education while improving his language skills. His commitment, dedication, positive attitudes and correct decision making in such a bad situation are very commendable.

The 26 year old Oussama Almasalmeh has set a goal to study English through HOPES to improve his job prospects while studying for his electric and electronic engineering degree at Turkey.The very fact that he is displaced from his home country due to war and his determination to study and educate himself for finding the right opportunities to ultimately rebuild his country shows his resolve for a particular end purpose is very commendable.

I agree with him, education is very important in these days and I agree with his goal , rebuild his country, this is the most important thing.

I also agree with him. English is the most commonly spoken language in the world, is the language of sciene, diplomacy, tourism and internet. Knowing English increase my chances of getting a good job within my home country or finding work abroad.
Since English is spoken in so many countries, there are thousands of schools around the world that offer programmes in English. If i speak english, there are lots of opportunities for me to find an appropriate school and courses to suit my academic needs.
English is not only useful, it give me a lot of satisfaction. Making progress feels great. It's also fun. By learning English, i'll also learn about other cultures.

I totally agree. I think that education is the most important thing in our life.
