Default ESL for our cricketers..!!!

AIUB to teach spoken English to cricketers
Tue, Jul 8th, 2008 10:52 pm BdST
Dhaka, July 8 (bdnews24.com) – The national cricketers are going to learn English from the American International University of Bangladesh (AIUB) to bring fluency in English speaking .

It is common with captain Mohammad Ashtabula to speak broken English. Other Bangladeshi cricketers are no exception.

In this regard, the AIUB has come forward to comply with the request of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).

"You know better how much they (cricketers) are weak in English and it is important for the players to speak good English fluently," BCB member Ishtiaq Ahmed told bdnews24.com.

Ahmed said, "We have got a positive response from the AIUB and are now waiting for the BCB approval."

However, the AIUB would not take any charge for teaching English to the cricketers.

"It is not a new matter for us as we had earlier taught English to the different government officials without any cost," said Lutfar Rahman, public relations director of the AIUB.

Abdul Kader Nazmul, AIUB sports coordinator, said that they would also teach computer literacy to the cricketers.

Haha Beamer classic...

Ashraful going to conference sweating
All the reporters are eagering waiting
When asked about his batting
he answers that he follows only team ruling
He points out to other batsmen can't stop blaming
After this ESL training
He will start american cursing
After all this learning
he, along with other bolods, will be the same, we will see our game has no improving
That's why they need special training
Only can be solved by a** kicking

I'd much rather they spend that time becoming better at cricket. It's not as if we can't hire an interpreter if some silly people find themselves embarrassed at our players' "broken English."

Not understanding English also has its positives. When the opposition sledges you, call your mom names, make fun of your height- all you do is nudge and give a hablu smile. Now, what will they do?

Since thier english skills is as good as their cricketing skills, BCB probably thought that improving that will somehow improve their cricketing skills. I hope it works for their sake.

On the contrary I am against this ESL. It'll give more opportunity for Ashraful to talk big and humiliate the entire country.

It does not bother me that they can't speak English well, but they sure need to understand English well.

This might help some cricketers to come here and understand what some (not all) members are analyzing constructively.

Ramiz Raja: Ashraful, what are you going to do first
Ashraful: We gonna do fu**ing bat first. The wicket is made up of piece of Shi*. So bowlers aint get a chance to take the fu**ing wicket.
Ramiz Raja: Ashraful, why are you cursing?
Ashraful: Yo, you got fu**ing problem? I'm gonna smack you son

lolz

hmm, it's a good idea. I hope our players can speak clear english in match presentation...
