I think you are one of those who can give great contribute to change press and mentality here and the topic you chose is good one
Just in my humble opinion you should use a simple vocabulary as the average Omani [same as the average Italian :p] dsnt speak an excellent English and Times of Oman gives you great public

Great current topic... and presentation.
I'm not sure if I would agree with the (please no one take offense to the terms) "dumbing down" of the language. While it is very important for all of the average readers to be able to understand the topic, I'm not sure if representing your writing in an even more simple way is a positive.
I'm curious as to how many people have to read your column and approve before it goes to print? Just being curious.

Balqis:

Thank you for your wonderful words. Perhaps I would consider that in the future but shouldn't it be the other way around that the people become more intelligent by updating their vocabulary instead of the English teaching system they use in high schools?

OmanForLife:

Thank your words. And as for your query, there are only 2 people that it goes through for it to be published: me and the web editor at the Times of Oman website.

nice.

but starting off with the responsiblity towards your freedom of speach ect etc..and ensuring your facts are right..i find it shocking to read both this statement and the messed up fact-statement in differences between SQU and studied-abroad students.
