English is the one foreign language that has become essential in our modern global village. Being able to speak the English language allows you to be understood anywhere in the world.

English has become the major language of international business and information, science and technology, education and publishing. About two-thirds of scientists read operating instructions in English. Approximately, three-quarters of the world’s correspondence is written in this international language.

Most global IT operations use English to communicate. Computer technology, with its specific technical jargon, is one of the driving forces that has made English the universal language of modern business.

Knowing more than one language is a big advantage in the corporate world, especially if you’re dealing with people of different nationalities. CEOs who are native speakers of Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew or Japanese are running U.S. companies today. They also speak English, of course.

Speaking the language of both your competitor and your colleagues can definitely bring great business benefits. It is never too late to start learning English.

Who knows, it just might give you that nudge up the corporate ladder.

Must Not or Don't Have To?

You must leave and you have to leave have the same meaning.

Their managers do not allow tipping.
Tipping is forbidden.

You don’t have to tip the waiters at the Terrace Restaurant.
But you may leave a tip if you want to.
Tipping is allowed.

Dear Professor Clever,

I just downloaded the
CleverTrainer but I wasn’t able to successfully install it because it was cancelled by the installation wizard. This message appeared on my computer screen: “Unable to find installed HOTSYNC.EXE application. Aborting Installation.” Please advise. I am very interested in using the CleverTrainer.

                                                                            - Frank Elsner (Muenchen, Germany)

Hello Frank,

CleverTrainer is an application for your hand-held or PDA (Palm). After downloading the Clicktionary® Version 2.9 from our website www.cleverlearn.com, please check if you have plugged in your hand-held cradle and have installed the HotSync® application already.

The HotSync®
application and the cradle allows you to synchronize your Personal Vocabulary with the Clicktionary Version 2.9 and the CleverTrainer. Normally, the HotSync® software is already included when you buy your hand-held.

Thanks Frank and enjoy the



Dear Professor Clever,
