English is such an interesting and rich language. Here are some trivia: (a) Did you know that there is no word that rhymes with “month”?; (b) The word “dreamt” is the only word in the English language that ends in “mt”; (c) The symbol # is called an octothorpe and the symbol & is an ampersand; (d) the word “boondocks” came from the Tagalog word “bundok”; and (e) words like kill, daemon, burn, worms, viruses, rip, and others, besides new words like “phishing”, malware, etc., lent their hand in the English language
Information Technology has its own jargon, so it may be easy to get lost with some of the basic rules on English grammar, structure, composition, and style. Hence, why not refresh/review your English skills? Please attend the next PSITE NCR MSW on “English Proficiency for IT Educators” on Feb. 18, 2009, 8AM-5PM at UE-Recto.
