Mahmoud Letter
May 5, 2014

To Whom It May Concern:

Mahmoud Alhafez was a student of mine at the International English Center, University of Colorado at Boulder in the Spring, 2014 session. I had the pleasure to have him as a student in my Beginning Reading and Listening & Speaking Classes. I would like to take this opportunity to speak about Mahmoud as a student in my class.

Mahmoud was a responsible and diligent student who made progress in the time since he has been in our program. He engaged himself in classroom activities full-heartedly. He readily got along with other students and participated in groups well. Moreover, he demonstrated very good leadership skills in classroom activities. In addition, he had a positive attitude and has set his academic goals high.

Mahmoud has shown a determination and enthusiasm for learning which was reflected in his diligent assignments. He always asks pertinent and intriguing questions so that he can fully understand and comprehend new grammar points and concepts in writing summaries or on various topics for his presentations. He understands the importance of learning English in reaching his future goals.

All of these reasons support my feeling that Mahmoud Alhafez has the qualities needed to learn and grow as an Engineering student.

Sincerely,

Amelia May Tietsort
ESL Lecturer at the University of Colorado at Boulder

    Throughout this case study I will focus on four elements. Firstly I will look at Mustafa’s cultural background; his age, interests, education and employment.

    For the purpose of this assignment I chose Feruza, an Eritrean high school graduate. She was born and raised in Eritrea and came to live in Jeddah only five years ago. She studied English in an elementary school in Eritrea and continued studying it in an Eritrean International High School. She is not happy at all with what she has learnt during those years. She explained that during her elementary school years her teachers heavily focused on writing while neglecting speaking. When she continued her learning process here in Jeddah, her high school teachers focused only on speaking but not at the level she was expecting.…

    Thank you for taking your time to read this letter. I have recently read your article November 30, 2006, “Some Say Cop Videos Misleading.” I totally agree with you that some cops are being aggressive, mistreating and physically abusive toward some people that are misbehaving or breaking the laws. As you can imagine most people grew up believing that cops are meant to capture the villains. But you are giving a glimpse to those people in the world that do not have a clue that this kind of violent exist.…

    Developed Countries

    All human beings should live an equal life because you are not better than anyone in this class, you are equal to her, he is a human being just like him, you might be brown, she might be white but we should all be treated equally. Would you like being unable to communicate with others? Would you like being unable to read or write? Some people in the underdeveloped/ developing countries are not able to read nor write. We live in a sophisticated society, where developed countries want better education, better life style, and better healthcare. Whereas in the underdeveloped countries, they want a place where they can express their thoughts, a place where they can hold a pencil and place where they can learn about who they are. As Malala Yousafzai said “One child, one book, one pen, one teacher can change the world”. We do not appreciate how blessed we are, we do not know how the children of the underdeveloped/ developing countries are living their lives. And education is the key to success, education is the key to success, education is the key to success, education is the key to success, because I would have not been able to write what I wrote and read what I am about to read right now to you without education. I believe that in order for underdeveloped countries to develop, the richer nations should help the poorer nations by educating them. The richer countries can actually help underdeveloped countries by supporting them financially, sending volunteers to educate those who would like to be educated and by bringing some kids to the developed countries to educate them, because ignorance is created by the lack of education.…
