Yes. I agrees. Education is important to me and my family in the sense that its helps with improvement, creating jobs opportunities and able to contribute to society as well as nation at large.

I would like to ask about the last question in the task. Oussama's goal is to complete his education in the video it is true that he wants to complete his education but in answer it show correct is false.
Thank you

Hello NadezhdaGhuliyan,

Yes, you are right! I'm sorry for the confusion. I have just fixed the answer so that it is True in the exercise.

Thank you very much for taking the time to tell us about this error.

All the best,

I agree with Oussama but I didn't undrestand how he will continue his studies in electronics in Turkey.

What is the true meaning of education?
I think learning knowledge,skills, values,beliefs and habits.
I hope Oussama will do one day because he is very confident.

I totally agree, we have not to stop learning whatever the reasons. To be educated and updated leads to be qualified employee, respectable and happy individual.

Hope he achieves his goal soon and makes his dream come true.

yes i agree with oussama, because i think that we can never get a well built country if the citizens are not educated

I’m very happy
