If that is one of our leading universities, may heaven help the others. Whilst throughout the world, more and more people are successfully learning English, the British seem incapable of speaking and writing accurately even in their own language. All about us are becoming bi- or trilingual. No prizes for guessing who will get the best jobs available, and unfortunately, it will not be us!
