In the book, the author highlighted the advice of State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi who talked on the importance of English language to come on a par with the world.
“If we wanted our country to stand tall among the world nations, then our citizens in the nation must be able to speak, read and write in a common language that understands by the world people. When we look into the heart of the matter about reading and writing, we must equip ourselves with the translation skills on English language as soon as possible. Perhaps, we must able to translate an English book of vital importance for us or a science article for the public interest, or great works of arts and literature to be read among us. We must have the ability to translate the English text immediately.
Therefore, if we are skillful in English translation, we have the enormous and overwhelming opportunity in studying many subjects. Moreover, we could catch up all the developments of the world that are happening on the spur of the moment.
Therefore, we must push, promote and persuade for the learning of English language. The wakeup call should be more skillful in English. Only then, we would be on a par with the world.” The author replied the questions raised by the journalists and the event ended before noon. —GNLM
