In order to master these demands, adequate knowledge is required in dealing with the demands of a globalized world that is full of competition. In this regard, the role of the English language is required both in mastering communication technologies and to interact directly; moreover, the presence of the media especially the Internet will force people to learn English. As a means of global communication, English should be actively mastered both orally and in written.
