Язык узбекский – первый мой
Родной язык, живой родник.
И русский – тоже мне родной.
Он многих на земле роднит.
Язык – сокровище веков
И кладезь мудрости людей.
Чем больше знаешь языков,
Тем ты богаче и сильней!

Presenter discusses outcomes of 2 In-Service SOLE Trainings.
Uzbekistan adopted an English training program designed to teach it at an earlier age, to set
proficiency standards .New program demands new teachers. English is essential for any scholar,
student and in an effort to better compete in the global economy. Conferences, seminars are held in
English, and not knowing it means secluding, limiting someone scholarly research, because the
literature is all in English. In line with the new program, special subjects, particularly in technical and
international specialties, are to be taught in English. There are no university preparing ESP,
Business English teachers, training ICT skills in Uzbekistan.
Universities‟ best graduates with a major ”English” are usually selected, but young talents with
proficient English fluency and accuracy can‟t manage preparing relevant courses for target audiences.

trainings with the Certificate on Completion like “Designed for #BusinessEnglish”, executed by

Written by Michael Thomsen (@mike_thomsen)
Every week Twitter provides us with some of the funniest responses to trending topics.
And this week was no exception. Our seven-day round-up of the best hashtags has everything:
from things sneakerheads say to hilarious nighttime thoughts. And for these tweeters, nothing is off limits.
Check in here, for our weekly recap of the funniest hashtags.
“ Hashtags force self-importance to express itself in the crudest of all possible forms, attaching woefully misplaced
sentiments to literally coded #subjects sent to take advantage of other people's attention spans and gullibility”.
