Ezeufi: Is he a graduate in english language? Since when has putting together sentences correctly in a foreign language become a measure of someone's intelligence or competence?

Why do english people themselves (including graduate) use phrases like "it wasn't wrote down", "I don't guarantee nothing"; and scottish people even say "how is you?"

Take your slavish mentality back to where you belong.

Oboy, e never reach namecalling levels, plsss. Putting together correct and coherent English became a yardstick to measure intelligence and competence since we all agreed that English Language is our lingua franca.
Ask yourself, if English is not important, why are we being taught almost all subjects in English? Why do we write our exams in English? Why do we have to speak and actually practise to be fluent in English when we have to face interview panels?
With the number of local dialects we have in Nigeria, it only makes it easy if we speak one common language which from generations past has been English.
Stop being deliberately antagonistic as usual and let's call a spade a spade.

frankie121: Its really pathetic. Who do we blame? the school system or the individual who refused to be educated, maybe both

My brother, sometimes methink speaking and writing in correct English is inborn and not something you learn. But then, a montessori school proprietoress once told me that by the age of 6, it is established how bad or good a child will be in speaking and writing English. I don't know how she got her deductions, but it made me believe that the foundation matters - the home and the kind of school a child first attends.

doofanc: Where's d link to d original post?

I strongly suspect d writer was merely fooling around, trying to attract attention. Its easy to see deliberate mistakes

Sadly, it is not an attention seeking post. If you had said it is an avenue to advertise my editing and proofreading services, maybe I would have agreed to that.
About the link to the original post, I deliberately didn't include it because it is a comment on a friend's post on facebook. Putting the link will definitely show the person's name, and before you know it, it could become messy; which I don't want.
The post is exactly as I saw it, no additions except for the quotation marks at the beginning and the end of the post.

It wasn't an attack on the messenger, bros, as I can't recall calling the guy names at any point. It read more as a joke to me. I got his message clearly, but it would have sank in more if he wrote it in simple and correct English, and I wouldn't have been giggling as I did reading it.

Please my people, English is just a language. It is never an achievement speaking flawless English.
Our counterparts overseas are busy researching in the laboratories and we are here researching English to speak flawlessly.
Nonsense.

If our counterparts overseas submit their research proposals in this kind of English, I doubt they would be given the chance to search in the first place, not to talk of research.

I am also sure that any undergraduate that submits his thesis' proposal to his supervisor this way will spend more than an extra year in school - except he pays someone to write the project for him.

You are getting it all wrong. If I had seen an indication that the person who wrote that comment on a post is a budding writer, believe me, I would have offered my 'write right' service free of charge.
And it's because of this ridicule that I didn't add the link to the post. Imagine people sending friends requests to the guy on facebook just to insult him.
Even as the guy may not know what is happening here because of him, I feel bad that some of you are making it look like I attacked his person. I am just like a grammar police - what I see and write about has no personal beef attached to them. I am only doing my job, sir, ma.

I support you,I support your comment.99% of nairaland does not know the differences between education,illiterate and language.you can be educated even in pidgin and that does not term you a poor graduated, researches count a lot but we specialise in english and forget it is just another country language and not an education which will not require them going to school,you can be educated in any language

An accountant who can read and write but cannot prepare a balance sheet?

A doctor who can read and write but cannot even treat a malaria?

a management who can read and write but cannot even manage a game centre?

When will nigeria know the real meaning of education

English only matter with mass communication, accounting deal with figures, doctors should be able to find solution to human health

We have good coaches and good managers, we have profitable goals and unprofitable goals. When will they wake up on nairaland and maybe that is when they will know I don't care if I type rubbish but researching everyday to be able to sort problem with my enable environment and people eventually see the world through me

Won't it be better if you are both talented and a good communicator in the language.

I think you need to educate yourself better before assuming the role of an English language perfectionist .The last time I checked , the right way to write the following words are either " name calling or name-calling " not "namecalling" ,as you have severally written on your comments above .

This is the handiwork of negligence to the education sector in the disguised name of privatization. One thing you should know is that the present university standard in Nigeria is not up to Standard 6 in the olden days, talk less of Secondary/Cambridge grade of then. How do you expect good grammars from graduates who were busy killing each other in the name cult/fraternity? or girls who had rooms in all the big and small hotels in the country as university undergraduates? Majority of the lecturers and professors are there with forged certificates. You can never give out what you don't have.

The graduate in question tried, make out your time and go the campuses in our Universities to see things yourself. Politicians destroyed the public education for the citizens to remain their subjects forever.

Today's education is for the highest bidders. I attended public school till my present grade.Nigeria should go back to the old system and honor the qualified teachers,lecturers and professors, so that education will find its bearing again in this country, if not that , this graduate in question will be the next minister of education,communication or even president in Nigerian tomorrow.

I dont know why some Nigerians use English as a criterion for everything, in the multi-national company I work for in United states, my supervisor has been in america for the past 26years and till today, her spoken english is worse than anything you can think of and its worse to the extent that, you will hardly understand what she is saying. the problem with Nigerians is that, we always claim to know the language more than the true owner of the language.

Adichie studied medicine and pharmacy at the University
of Nigeria for a year and a half. During this period, she
edited The Compass, a magazine run by the university's
Catholic medical students. At the age of 19, Adichie left
Nigeria and moved to the United States for college. After
studying communications and political science at Drexel
University in Philadelphia, she transferred to Eastern
Connecticut State University to live closer to her sister,
who had a medical practice in Coventry. She received a
bachelor's degree from Eastern, where she graduated
summa cumlaude in 2001.


Can you see Mass Communication involvement, you should learn to understand, she did not only studied medicine, she stop 1.5 years and went ahead to study mass communication, she go through a lot ,not just medicine,so make your sense know more history about people before commenting.
