My generation and the likes speak and write good English

I like to thank the person who wrote the following comment in my blog regarding the standard of my generation's English:

The generation of BT and the likes speak good English. In addition to this, many also write equally well. Our Inspectors of Schools were all from UK who had flown down to report on the progress that our schools were making. These Inspectors all sat in during selected classroom lessons. They listened analytically, interacted with students and eventually spoke to the teachers and principals before submitting their reports for improvements.

The standard of spoken and written English today pales in comparison to the the old generation. The lecturers from then University of Singapore all came from UK. They were competent and fully qualified. RI was named after Stamford Raffles, Singapore's founder. His legacy continues to thrive and shall continue to inspire the minds of all our people to make the little red dot a force to be reckoned with.

Language will evolve into internet based but should not pride on too much.For example a major news breaker or maker or faker whichever apply now giving highly price tuition to kids.Rather be free spirited and evolve ,no one can learn from 154.Now they spend more times on intern-al affairs and threesome rather then news digging out truth and facts.In God we trust and others not so.
