Present Status

Two researchers, Rahman and Alhaisoni (2013), elaborated on the present status of English in KSA, stating that it is currently the medium of instruction in technical education, medicine, and many other majors. They added that students now recognize that English is no longer a language they need simply to pass examinations, but rather, is a subject important in higher education, international communication, business, and trade.

As a result, students consider English highly practical and prestigious, which has led to a tremendous increase in student enrollment in various English language institutes today. Another researcher, Al-Seghayer (2014), asserted that English enjoys an eminent status in various sectors at all levels within KSA at present for a variety of reasons. Among these is the fact that it is the only foreign language taught in Saudi Arabian public and private schools, universities, and a variety of industrial and government institutions.
